Two pcs

  Peachy boy 21:10 03 Dec 2006

Hi I have 1 workin pc and one not working pc and I want to take the hard dirve out of the not workin pc and put it in the workin pc to format and reboot it. But I am not sure how to put it in as I no it has to be a slave drive. Does anyone know how to do this.
Thanks Alan

Make sure the jumpers on the second drive are set to the slave position which involves moving a small sleeve over the pins depending on the hard drive in question. Otherwise connect it and see if the pc recognises it

The HDD that is in your PC will have the jumpers set to master you will need to look at the end of the HDD you want to use as a slave to see how the jumper should be set click here
