Yes, if it is not finding your hard drive it will not load Windows. Windows is on the hard drive.

Primary master wdc


Primary Master .
This is where the hard disk parameters are entered for the primary master IDE/ATA device, the first drive in a modern IDE system. See the hard disk section for details on what these terms mean and how these devices are set up. The various settings for the drive are discussed in detail in the IDE Setup / Autodetection section. The default setting for this on a system with IDE autodetection, is usually "Auto"

WDC That Mean Western Digital Company.This's Logo HDD.

First Time If you have Problem With Bios You can Select Load Default Bios to clear any fault setting before.and select Save&exit.
To verify problem again.

Probably the hard drive is dead. Did you drop it recently? Anyway, it could be just the connector, if your good with hardware you could open it and check. I would suggest you to use the warranty though.

When i installed hard drive and set the jumper on primary master it dint show up and in bios the txt is showing like that primary master drive 0 (not installed)


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test or replace all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard)) drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you could run the check disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Hard Disk and Booting issue


go into your BIOS and on the bottom of your screen there should be a (last good config) of (fail-safe config) value for one or=f the F1 to F12 buttons. also. are you running a 4gb hdd??? or is that a typo? anyhow, XP REQUIRES 2GB at all times free if your hdd is running at less that that (cause its full) your boot up could be messed around. finally make sure that the little plug on your hdd is across the Master or cable select pins not the slave as this can cause probs too. good luck.

Hard drive not detected


Rickyrudy, I suspect one of the following may work: -The problem drive is set as the slave on the secondary IDE channel. If it?s the only drive change it to the master. -Try checking the drive setup setting in the BIOS, make sure both drives are set to auto detect in the BIOS. If this works don?t forget to try setting the unused drive setting to none to speed up the boot process. -If you are using jumpers to define the master and slave double check the settings against the chart on the drive in question. -If you?re using cable select to define master/slave drives try using the jumpers instead. Let us know if this works and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
