I assembled a pc from some parts i had, for some reason when i try to instal os it does not recognise that i have any hard disc connected. I have tested everything on my pc and the hard drive works fine. i think i may have altered a bios setting can anyone help
tried resseting default bios, tried both 40 and 80 wire cables and tried all the connections several times, jumper is set to master and using end connector on cable, can put the drive on to my pc and it works fine.
I have just installed a Maxtor Diamond 9 80gb and my system did not see it. On the back of the hard drive where the links are, there should be a setting called CAP this will restrict the drive to 32gb. Change this setting, and if this works you will have to update your BIOS.
both powermax and maxblast find the drive i used maxblast to format the drive, it did it fine but when i reboot, no primary master. maxblast says about booting to hard drive and holding down ctrl at the right time but i have tried this every which way to no availl, heeeelllpp.
i have tried both windows 98 se, and me using the correct start up disk for both, i get the page that says no drive has been detected could be boot virus blah blah, then when i run fdisk i get a message saying no fixed disk present
