View Full Version : Getting two hard drives to work together



01-09-1998, 12:26 PM
I have a Pentium-75 with 56MB of Ram, Windows 95 and a 1.3GB Maxtor IDE hard drive. I decided recently to install another hard drive, a Seagate (ST31277A EIDE). My Cmos recognises the hard drive, but when I run Windows 95 it takes a very long time. In fact I have rebooted my PC about 10 times since I installed my second hard drive without any success. Finally I unplugged the second hard drive. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Have you made sure that the Windows 95 drives jumper is set to master and that the seagate drives jumper is set to slave? Also what size is the drive because Windows 95 has probmlems seeing larger drives. - Josh

Josh - Welcome to PressF1, but why pull up a thread this old that is hardly relevant in todays world, and that the creator is highly unlikely to see?

why not just lock the threads that are really really old?

I agree, they should lock after 3 months (and that's being conservative).

Damn I'm now making the problem worse :lol:
