well i had some problems with old hard drive, when i had only one hard disk installed (40 gb maxtor)way back 4 years ago… the problem was then…some times system didnt detect hard drive …but it was rare i used to unplug data cables …that how problem was solved… now i have two hard disk.
- 80 gb seagate 2-3 yearls old
- 250 gb WD 1 year old (primary boot drive)
I have problems with not detecting secondary disk 3 months ago then i changed jumber setting and data cable (i still think its not yet up to quality)
the problem solved of hardware detection… not now i am having boot trouble some times even i am just restart my pc and then i will not boot…after 3-5 mins it will boot properly…i dunt think there is problem with hard… i think there might be jumper setting problems or mother board problem… but i ma not sure …
