Hi!
That can be done from BIOS setings. First check that both the disks have been detected by the BIOS.
Usually, the hard disk at sata1 (1st sata connector on board is for master drive.
Secondly, look for the bootup option and choose maxtor as primary drive (to boot from it)

Hope this helps!. let me know about *********** board details also, if further any assistance is needed.

How do I set the jumpers on my Maxtor DiamondPlus 9 80 GB SATA /150 HHD drive as a second drive.


SATA drives are jumperless -- each drive has its own cable to the motherboard or controller -- so there's no setting on the drive to say "primary" or "secondary" as there was with IDE.

The connection on the controller or the motherboard will determine which drives are primary and which are secondary.

Change a hard drive


As a general rule, SATA drive like the DiamondMax Plus 9 160 GB Hard Drive can be made either master or slave by just plugging the drive cable to the appropriate alternative SATA port on the motherboard without changing anything on the drive. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE PC FROM THE MAIN POWER FIRST! Most motherboard will have two such ports on the motherboard in close proximity to each other (just follow the 'flat' usually red or yellow cable from the SATA drive towards the motherboard to locate the ports). Hope it helps.

DiamondMax 21 80-GB ATA/100 Hard Drive didn't get recognized as 1st drive or 2,3. do i need any software.


Use a partition manager to see if the drive is recognized. If it is not recognized, you may not have the jumper setting correct. If it is a master drive, set the jumper for master drive. same for slave or cable select

Slave jumper setting


SATA drives don't have jumper settings.

You can set master/slave in BIOS.

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA


There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.

Can i use this maxtoe diamond max 21 500 gb drive for a c drive i am removing a 80 gig that is defective


If you mean remove your old 80 gb drive and replacing with the Maxtor 500 gb drive you should be able to. The Maxtor 21 series is equiped with SATA. Just make sure that your computer can run SATA. If not, I believe that there are adapters out there.
