I have two HDD,primary 40gb second 8gb. I decided to buy a new 120gb hd to replace the small one which was not big enough., I replaced the small one with the new one and the machine booted OK but did not find the second hdd. the jumpers were set to CS (the other options were DS Master and Cap limit I tried Cap limit no luck changed back to CS and found the computer would not boot. It Asked for F1 to continue F 2 for set up. I can't see that I have changed anything so eventually I have taken out the second HD and used the XP disc to boot, All help and suggestions greatly received.
i had the same problem this is how i solved it i think its because the new hd is not formatted try reinstalling the 120g hdd use jumper setting cs boot up xp then goto control panel, administative tools, computer management on the list on the left click disk management a list of your hard drives should show up right click the new one and format it
But only just. I found that I had a problem with the Primary Master connection on the motherboard and I am having to use the Slave connection, and then a fault in the cable (Probably me). OK I now have the two drives in the computer and in Computer Management they are both showing. C: is OK, the new one shows as Disk 1, 114.49 GB Unallocated and Basic Online. I cannot get an option to name the drive when I right click, can anyone offer advice, where do I go from here ? Thank you.
