I have a new Maxtor internal HDD Iwant to add on. I have connected to the ribbon cable and the small 5pin one. My problem is that it doe's not show in 'My computer' but in Systems info it shows up and also in BIOS. Can anyone help an idiot who is going wrong somewhere. Thanks
You need a bootdisk which you can download from click here
Once you have that, for safety's sake so you don't make any mistakes disconnect your master drive and make the new hard disk the master. Switch on and put the bootdisk in. Select "with CD support" from the menu. When you get to the A prompt type in fdisk and press enter. Follow the prompts. When that has finished you will need to restart your computer, still with the boot disk in and this time when you get to the A prompt type in format c: and press enter. When that has finished, take out the boot disk, replace your master hard disk and change the new hard drive to slave and reboot.
