TAKE IT OUT AND RE-INSTALL IT.CHECK THE JUMPERS AND MAKE SHURE THEY ARE SET TO MASTER OR FACTORY SETTINGS.LOOK AT THE JUMPERS ON THE OLD HARD DRIVE THAT YOU ARE REPLACING AND SET THEM EXACTLY AS THAT DRIVE.CHECK ALL CONNECTORS AND RIBBONS FOR SOLID CONNECTIONS.SOMETIMES,THE PINS INSIDE THE HARDDRIVE CONNECTOR BEND SLIGHTLY.IT IS REALLY HARD TO TELL UNLESS YOU REALLY LOOK AT THEM CAREFULLY.

Board is not recognizing my 80G Maxtor drive. I


with AmiBios you may be able to get it to rediscover your drive... If that doesn't work, open the case and check your IDE and SATA connections. Sounds like you have a RAID configuration with your Promise board.

Not sure I've helped, but you have some clues to check on. Probably visiting Promise's website and looking for troubleshooting may help.

If your Maxtor drive is a SMART drive, you might be able to check to see if it indeed has failed.

Compaq d540s hard disk upgrade


Jackwan -

Sounds like the boot record of the drive may be corrupt. When you runs the XP installation, you'll be given an option to start the Recovery Console. Go ahead and open that, should bring up a command prompt. At the prompt, type "fix mbr" (With the quotes removed). Select Yes or Continue when asked, and go through the repair process, then reboot the system and try installing Windows again.

*Note*
You might want to check first, make sure the jumpers on the hard drive are set to Master, or Cable Select, and make sure the drive is connected as Drive 0 on the Primary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
