View Full Version : Problem installing new 40G hard drive



09-06-2001, 11:16 AM
Have Jetway motherboard with intel zx chip. Trying to install a new Seagate U series 5 40Gig hard drive. The bios won't detect the drive on autodetect setting and freezes when I manually enter in the specifications. Have checked all cables, power supply etc. Tried to use on different positions - primary and secondary/master and slave.
Can anyone help??

I had the same problem. Turned out to be the IDE cable. I was using the standard 40 wire cable on a ATA drive. They need a 80 wire cable.
