PATA hd slave to SATA hd

Before I reinstalled my Vista OS because it was having restart issues, I transferred all the data to a PATA hard drive.. worked fine. After the reinstallation of Vista I slaved it again but now CMOS doesnt see the hard drive. I used a vertical bridge to connect the two hard drives. Ive used it twice, the first time was when I got my new PC with the SATA hd. I bought it to transfer data off my PATA hd. Ive tried everything, moved jumper postions, updated BIOS, nothing works. Any ideas?

USB 3 has the fastest data transfer speed through a computer with USB 3 port. If your computer does not support USB 3 then it cannot transfer data at USB 3 speeds.
If you install a hard drive into an USB 3 hard drive adapter case and the data transfer speed would depend how fast a hard drive you install in this USB 3 adapter case.
A SATA hard drive is faster than an IDE/PATA hard drive. Make sure you get the correct USB hard drive adapter case with the SATA or IDE/PATA connector that matches the hard drive.

I have two hard drives in my tower How can I make it boot so that both hdd show in one os And it goes straight to windows


Windows will see both hard disks when Windows opens up.
For IDE/PATA hard drives the boot hard disk (C drive) must contain the Windows operating system and it must be jumpered as the Master drive. The other hard drive must be jumpered as a Slave drive if it is on the same data cable as the Master drive.
After Windows has been installed and this Slave drive has been partitioned and formatted Windows will see this hard drive as D: Drive which can be used as data storage etc.
If you have SATA hard drives you need to connect each SATA hard drive on its own SATA cable/controller.

I have HP Comaq Presario SR1617CL Desktop PC, part number ED870AA with a Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N - hard drive - 160 GB - ATA-133, I would like to upgrade to a 500GB hard drive. I have a ASUS A8AE-LE...


XP cannot be installed natively on an SATA disk without the appropriate driver which must be loaded during the install - an extremely complicated maneuver. The best way to deal with that is to just add the new SATA hard disk: install XP on the PATA and use the new SATA for your files as a separate partition. The adapter cable can be bought for about $5 from the same shop as the hdd.
All the other modifications are just fine - just remember , the RAM will not be fully recognized and used because of the limitations of the 32bit XP.

One needs to be a master and one needs to be pegged as a slave. You can have seperate OS..Win 7 on ons and XP on the other then at post screen you can select which OS you want.

Jumper setting for slave drive


there is no such master or slave setting when SATA is used.
it is mainly used to tell the motherboard which one is master or slave when connected with IDE cable (PATA).
you don't need to worry about it as you are using a SATA HD.

the boot disk priority can be set in the BIOS
press del or F2 after you press the power button on CPU. you will be put with the BIOS/CMOS setup. go to boot priority and set accordingly, there is also an option to set the default hard disk in case you have more than one HD.

Is my harddrive for an mt6705 gateway SATA?


Your Component Replacement Manual shows how to replace the Hard Drive for this computer. In it, they show an "IDE" (PATA) drive. You can double check this by opening the HD compartment, and examining the HD. SATA HD have no pins.

Hope this helps you.

Good Luck

Hard drive is not working, waspurched one year ago.


This issue has many various factors on why a hard drive doesn't work the way it should be. Let's discuss it one by one:

First, ensure that all the cables ( SATA/PATA )are properly seated or attached to your MOBO. If the cables were checked, makes sure the molex which gives power to the hard drive is connected.

If all are in place, then a Primary & Slave of hard disk issue is another factor. Lets assume that you are using a PATA or IDE cable. If you are only using one IDE cable as of this moment an issue of setting your jumpers on their proper places. Make sure each jumpers are on the right places, the Master jumper ofcourse that should be on your Primary HDD ( w/c ofcourse w/ O.S. ) and the other HDD its jumper is on the slave.

Another one if the ( PATA/SATA ) is properly seated on the controllers of your hard drive.

Also, you try isolating the cables. Probably, the cables you are using are not working, obselete and needs to be replace.

Lastly, does your hard drive spins? Do you hear any clunking sounds? Then, it only means an issue of hard drive failure had arised and needs to be replace.
