Just did this last week. Notes:
1. It wouldn't be anything other than MASTER. I let it be that on the second IDE channel.
2. The drive was a little mangled so I booted KNOPPIX and copied the files to the other drive.
Best of luck,
My laptop was a Compaq with a 6 GB hard drive (Dara 206000). The laptop failed to boot up as a result of a dead power supply. I have removed the hard drive and using a laptop hard drive adapter, tried to establish the laptop hard drive as a slave in a desktop unit so that I can extract some un-backedup data. My problem is this: The desktop unit recognizes it as a slave and in fact states that the laptop disk is performing satisfactorily when it looks at hardware that has been installed. BUT, the laptop drive does not appear in the My Computer window so that I can access it and recover my data. I would appreciate any information that will help me recover my data.
