Re: Old Hard Drive jumpers
sounds like something isn't hooked up correctly:
the jumper has to be on the correct one, since the sticker is gone...try movin it from one to the other til one of them work.
some ?'s though
1) you say your getting a cmos error:this is usally cuz something isn't hooked up right...IDE cables
2) if the jumper is set to master...there cannot be two hhd's set at master, one must b slave
I would put it back in your comp. & delete the partition for him, formatt it aslo,then give back to him so he can install OS.
3)last ? ...is he going to use this as a secondary drive
or is he using it as a master/w new OS.
if it is a secondary: then tell him to move jumpers over from one to the other.
since you said the drive can b seen in bios, and you cannot format: is because the partition made on that hhd must be set to active.
