In order to set it to slave you first needs to make sure the cable that u hoodked up to the hard drive is the slave not secondary then boot the computer to the bios and then under the ide section section you need to ensure that the hard drive is recognized as primary slave it will show the hard drive as a primary or a secondary that will let you you that u have the cable hooked up to the harddrive right if not usee the other connector on the same cabel and repeat the bios settings i know it sounds hard but it really is not good luck !!!!

How to format/install SATA 2TB hard drive (BARRACUDA) in Gateway GT5098E, Win XP Media Center Edition 2005?


Windows XP doesn't support SATA. You will need to use a program such as Nlite to integrate sata drivers into a new Windows XP disc. Once you have a disc with sata drivers just boot to the disc and follow the prompts to format the drive.

Hi,

These are quite an old hard drive and they are probably pass there due date, unfortunately the only way is to replace the faulty drive, I have had these problems and after changing to the later SATA versions I have had no problems since.

You can still buy these type of hard drives but they are getting expensive now as the newer versions are the normal fitted type and the cost for the same size can be half the price. Once they become faulty they really just need to be thrown away.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

  • Right Click [My Computer] and click Manage
  • Click Disk Management on the left side
  • Inspect the drives listed. The new drive may need to be formatted for the operating system to recognize it and assign it a letter.
  • To format the drive, right click the drive with no letter, and click Format. Choose your format (Preferred NTFS), and quick format the drive so that windows recognizes it.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.
