Is the original working drive set to Master or Cable Select?anthem said:it just does not show up when I turn on the computers
That is why I asked if it shows up in the BIOS configuration. You get into the computer's the BIOS settings long before the computer tries to boot the operating system. The exact method of viewing the BIOS settings varies a bit between motherboards and BIOS's. Some computers will display instructions to press a certain key to access the BIOS when they are first turned on. You may also need to navigate through some BIOS menus to see what is connected to the EIDE / IDE ports.anthem said:but I get a boot up failer notice. asking me to put in a boot up disk which I dont have.
