If it was an older computer, maybe it could take only an IDE hard drive.

    Sorry, bad answer.

    "IDE" and "EIDE" are virtually synonymous, at least for the last 15 years or so.

EIDE is a much older technology than PATA.

There is a great explanation on wikipedia's website. You can read all about it by clicking on the following link:

IDE will try to boot first when pluged in, sata will not boot. I think there is a adjustment in the BIOS setting to have the SATA boot first

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...


the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.

I need a new hard drive


You can go up to 120 GB for this model computer. Following is a link to Drive Solutions, Inc. It shows a 120 GB ATA drive available for your drive. ATA is the formal name for an IDE drive.

Here's the link:

Good luck.

Sata as boot and install eide drive as d:or e:


You can slave the EIDE hard drive off of the CD Drive, as long has it is also EIDE. There should be a flat grey ribbon cable plugged into the back of your CD Drive. That IDE ribbon cable should have 2 connectors on it, one of them should be plugged into the CD Drive.

If it does not have 2 connectors, then go buy a new IDE ribbon cable that has 2 connectors, they are cheap. Or ask a friend, he/she might have extra, I always do.

Make sure you have the jumper settings correct on both drives. One will be the master, the other should be the slave. Or set both to "select select" and let the computer decide. The jumper is a little black jumper that connects 2 pins together on back of the drive. This tells the drive if it is a master, slave or cable select.

There should be a sticker diagram on each drive denoting the correct pin-jumper setting.

One other thing, when you hook up 2 drives to 1 IDE cable, both drives share the bandwidth. If you are using one of the drives, don't try to use the other, major performance slow-down.

Also, you don't need to slave the drive. You can get a Hard drive enclosure and make the drive an external drive connected by USB. They are also cheap, but make sure the hard drive has a partition and is formatted before installing it in the enclosure.
