HDD master v.s. slave

Post by Akashio » Mon May 26, 2003 4:00 pm

Hey. I just finished building my computer and everything's in place. There's just ONE problem. My computer recognizes my 100g HDD as the primary master and my 20g HDD as the primary slave! I want it to be the other way around! How do I fix this?

BTW, both my HDDs are Maxtor.

Probably what you'll want to do is look on your hard drives and explicitly set the jumpets for each drive to be master or slave as appropiate. Usually these jumper settings are printed onto the drive, but sometimes they aren't and you have to check out the manual, or look it up online. I'm not sure if you can just change their positions on the IDE cable, but that'd be worth giving a shot as it requires a minimal amount of time.
