I got a new computer and I want to put a slave in it. Well.... I put a slave in it and made the jumper settings right. I turn on the computer and it boots up fine but, when I go to MY COMPUTER to see if the slave is there, its not. Its seems as if the hard drive is not recognized by the computer or something. I got it out of a new dell computer and i think it has an operating system on it but im not sure. Is there anyway I can get the computer to recognize the drive? or what about erasing everything off of it? Is there any way I could do that? Or see if theres anything at all on the drive? I dont know what to do. Like I said... I hooked everything up right the computer just doesnt recognize it. Please help me.
P.S. As i keep reading through the forum here it keeps saying to turn the computer on and get it in BIOS to see if the computer recognizes it. How do i do this? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
