|I built a PC for myself a couple of years ago. (The Motherboard is P5N32 Sli Plus), I had 2 SATA hard disks. Then I put in another IDE hard disk (Seagate ATA 80Gb), I got some data on this IDE disk. They all worked fine (the OS is located on a SATA disk). |
Few months later, I took the IDE hard disk out because my brother wanted to borrow it. As he got a new hard disk, he didn't want it. So I put it back. The problem is that winXP did not detect it anymore, even though it's detected in BIOS. It's weird!
Did I do something wrong? Shoud I set the jumper to SLAVE or CABLE SELECT? Should I enable LBA in BIOS? (phew! I can't find it in BIOS). Something wrong with IDE cable? Blue connector to the motherboard and the other black end to the hard disk, yeah? I did that.
