doesn't show up in BIOS - says nothing there! I have set it to auto and have done every config of cables, masters, slaves and jumpers but it seems that the drive just won't work on the system. The drive works as slave in 3 other computers I tested - even under Linux! I have tried putting the CD drives on same IDE channel and cable and they all work, just not the hard drive!. Tried doing the XP stuff of booting, chkdsk, fdisk etc but the HD is just not recognised!
Many thanks for your help though, any other suggestions?
