Question about Computers & Internet
1. First make sure that your motherboard supports a 250Gb hard disk.
2. Make sure that the drive is properly connected to the mother board and the jumper settings are set to Primary.
3. In the BIOS, ensure that the boot sequence is setup that CD is the first boot device.
4. Put in a boot XP CD. You must have at least XP installed, as any other OS older than this cannot support a 250Gb HDD.
5. Next ensure that you have formatted the drive during the install process. If you dont know how to install XP, get someone in the know to help you out.
This should work now...
