Check both hard drives for jumper position. A typical layout will be: master jumper in master position (see label on back or top of drive), then slave drive jumper in slave position. These jumpers are small and sometimes require the use of needle-nose pliers. Also, the data cable issue: A typical dual drive cable looks like one connector that is physically at the end of a cable yet farther apart than the other two. This gets connected to the motherboard. At the other end of this cable, you will see a connector (for master drive) and nearby, another connector (for slave drive). If your drives support the CAS mode (cable select), then it is irrelevant which connector these drives belong to (assuming you use the 2 closer connectors). If not, it is is imperative that the drive jumpers be properly positioned as described above. Finally, if the above steps were followed and still same problem, then change the BIOS setting from AUTO to forced type. Some BIOS's require the CAS mode to be present on both drives. This can get complicated, but simply write down the settings from each drive (ex: cylinders, sectors, heads...) and then type in these settings at the BIOS screen.
