Harddrive question.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok since my product key doesn't work to install windows on my 160 gig harddrive im using it as a slave and this 20 gig is a master. I checked BIOS and both are on there and made 20 gig boot first. There both on the BIOS and also on device manager. Both have "no problems" but the 160 gig is not in "My Computer" so what do I do next?

Have you set the jumper settings to slave?

There is no jumper settings on my 160 Gig, it's a SATA. And the 20 gig is a master because I haven't touched the jumper settings on it since i've had it.

Format the drive.
post #5 of 8
Yeah, it needs to be formated via the Disc Management console.

It's located in Administrator tools > Computer management.

Hmmm indeed..

If you are running XP, go..

Click Start>>right click My Computer>>Manage and then on the left-hand side click on Disk management.

See what it says about the drive, maybe post a screeny here...
