Stops booting - SATAII

I inherited my son's old PC and set up freeNAS with two 500GB drives. Everything worked fine for about a week. Then, when I turned it on it hung early in the boot process. I coudn't even get to the BIOS screen. I finally got it to boot by removing one of the HDs. A few days later, the other HD seemed to go bad and I RMA'd both of them. I ended up with two HDs from a different manufacturer and the same thing happened. I put the HDs into another system and they work fine.

Buy a new coputer :0) Make sure all cables are secured into the harddrives and also check that the pins on the harddrives are set to master and slave. press firmly on the ram to make sure they are inserted properly sometimes they can unseat. clear your systems cmos by removing the pin and placing it from 1, 2 to 2,3 resest and place back to original 1,2 this should allow you to enter system bios. check and see if bios recognizes both harddrives if not remove one and check to make sure pins are set to master and restart.If this still does not work remove the pin entirely and retry , once again if does not work place pin on CS. If there is still a problem your cord could be bad if your cd/dvd rom is found disconnect and try that cord if this works you know your problem.

Will Dell Inspiron 530 support Sata iiI (SATA 3) SSD?


Unfortunately the motherboard of the Dell Inspiron 530 supports RAID 0 5 and the maximum speed will be 3Gb/s that means that the motherboard only supports SATAII. If you want to have a SATA III SSD you will need to change your motherboard.

Plugged old an older HD into my custom pc and now no video appears on screen.? I was trying to help my wife retrieve old photos from her ancient 800mhz hp computer so i took the hd out of her pc and put...


Hi,

What you need to do is put the old HD in as a spare drive, not replace the one in the computer. Each drive can be either a Master or Slave. The pin settings are usually written on the drive. Once the computer boots to the regular drive, the OS will recongize the spare drive and give you the ability to open it and get your photos off of it. Make sure that when you start the computer that the cables are seated correctly on the board. The Master drive once you set the pin settings on the drive should be plugged into the Primary IDE controller, which is the plug closest to the edge of the board. Then the secondary drive, or slave once you set the pin settings, should go in the secondary IDE controller, which is the one right behind the primary. Then give it a try. Also, the older HD, what is the brand and model, maybe it's not compatible with the Intel board?

Thanks Mark

Can't detect HD WD 500GB SataII 16MB cache


If you purchased a full retail hard drive the drive came with Data Life Guard tools. Boot to the Data Life Guard cd and follow the prompts to set up your new drive. This should by pass any bios limitations.

If your drive didn't come with the Tool cd you can download it from Western Digital's site.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!
