How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

To copy all the items in your iTunes library (including the iTunes Library file that holds all your playlists, playcounts, ratings, and other data) to your external hard drive, follow these steps:

Quit iTunes.

By default, the iTunes folder is located in:

Is it possible to install Windows 2000 OS on a brand new hard drive in a Micron Millennia Computer that originally had Windows 98? Would there be anything on the motherboard that could prevent the...


Yes you would be able to install that OS on the system but the only thing you woudl have to look at is memory. professional version of 2000 requires 64MB of memory minimum and you need atleast a 10GB HDD. other than that, finding the dirvers may be a little hard these days and Windows 2000 is no longer supported by Microsoft so you will not get any updates for the OS post Nov 06

IBM netvista PIII type 6579 MNU doesn't boot


Sound like the memory is not compatable, try booting with no memory installed and see if the hard drive appears, if so it's a memory problem.

Need manual for Eone 433 desktop computer


I had the same problem recently with an emachines Eone 433 desktop. Taking it apart is certainly difficult. First of all, the metal compartment that holds the motherboard and drives is beneath the CRT monitor. In order to access and remove the compartment, the bottom blue plastic cover must be removed. To do this, unplug everything and flip the Eone upsidedown, there are four screws to remove, two at the back, two at the front. Then pull back the plastic rim prop to reveal two more screws, which will remove the plastic stand. This uncovers the last two screws you need to take out. Once that is done, you can begin to lift the bottom cover out, you will have to disconnect the RCA connectors to completely remove it. After this is done, you are now looking at the metal compartment, held in by a single screw at the edge closest to the rear of the Eone. Then you can disconnect the VGA, power, and various audio and controller wires to lift the compartment free of the Eone. Done, now you can replace or upgrade any failing drives, add in some PC100 SDRAM SODIMM (those half size laptop cards, cept this type is ancient, might find a 64MB or 128MB card in a junk heap or used PC store). That's about all you can do for upgrading this thing, my advice, maybe put ubuntu linux on it for the kids, a larger hard-drive if you have a spare one larger than 6GB lying around....good luck, if i wasn't clear enough, shout it out.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
