hey guys. kinda new to this forum wuts u. anyways my problem is that i have 2 hardrives. a regular IDE maxtor 40 gb. and a WD raptor 74 gb. set in sata.
my question is. i had windows installed on the raptor running and then recently something happened and i was getting the “blue screen of death” as windows was tryign to load. it would show up for a split second then restart my computer.
so i installed windows on my extra hardrive, the maxtor one. all went well then when i hook edup the raptor in sata again, and booted up, the computer boots from the sata first and of course the blue screen of death thing happens then restarts…i even have the maxtor set on master on jumpers.
is there a way where i can make my maxtor drive load windows and when i goto “my computer” the raptor will be there too because i have to back up some files before i format it…
my basic question is. how do u set SATA as slave and IDE as master???
thanks guys. all help is much appreciated.
