It isn’t located anywhere in Windowsas far as i know. Why would my motherboard see the drive but not Windows? The primary is an ATA drive. It warned me about gb possibly being the max or something but at that point i just didn’t know and did it. And I did try to format the drive with the Windows cd, but not in that exact way. Allow other boot paths to be chosen.

Anyway, thanks for helping if you could. Disable the onboard if you want and install the drivers for the PCI card This is to be a second drive for storage.

Intec’s site shows a lot of upgrades since my version, but i’m just a trial and error idiot, so i’m guessing that’d be a mistake. Once the OS has written to the hdd, you no longer have to reply to the prompt to boot from the optical drive. Board index All times are UTC.

Also, i don’t know exactly where the driver would be in the device manager, but i searched and didn’t recognize it there. It was a Seagate. I have been programming on computers since the ZX It’s always funny until someone loses an Operating System! Use the “C” partition to install your OS. When the OS has pre-loaded into memory and requests a setup specification, choose a Gb partition size for the primary partition.

Afer a while, I finally got my mobo to recognize the hard drive in the bios.

Free tech support, motherboard ID, and more. I didn’t make any partitions and just formatted the whole gb. Create an extended partiton of the size that is adequate, or divide the drive into three equal partitions. So i downloaded them from somewhere, installed them and now the only place on my system where the hard drive is recognized is in the bios under ‘bootable devices’.

I have been repairing computers since Don’t be concerned if the useful space for the setup is less than the total capacity.

The only thing I could think of doing is upgrading the mobo bios. The BIOS may recognize the hdd stats and present them, but may not understand them. Driver installation wasn’t on the cd menu and the floppy with the drivers would just say that the disc wasn’t formatted when i accessed it. Yet to some people I still know nothing The disk may be there but not activated yet.

Format all partitions at this time, so you do not have to do so later. I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up. You can reset the boot order after the OS has finally run “on its own” for the first time.
