After formatting four times, a Maxtor diamondmax 9 6Y080MO using
MSI-PM8M2-V motherboard with a celeron D 2.93, the hard drive is not recgonized to reinstall XP home. What can be done for Windows to see the HD.
Here's another problem: I have two 6Y080MO HD's. I have one running on a MSI-6178LM motherboard with 850Plll. I went to swap to the above MSI-PM8M2-V motherboard. I received a page to start windows normally...I tried numerous ways to get it to work the motherboard would not accept the HD. Is there a way to swap HD's from one computer to another?
After going through that I put the HD back and now it's making some noise...I'm thinking it's damaged now!
My intentions where to take the HD from MSI-6178LM which has all my vital info on...to the other system to have two 80gb HD in the same computer.
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks, Steve
