Cable Select is today's best way to use IDE 80 conductor connections and cable. But you left out a small detail such as where this drive is connected.
Tell more like this.
One end of the cable is on the motherboard, it's BLUE.
From the motherboard along the cable the next connection is GREY and attached to my ______ Make, Model hard disk.
At the other end of the cable is a BLACK connection and it's connected to my _____ Make, Model hard disk.
Just a wee bit more.
I got two harddrives in my IBM netvista, one with my windows xp OS and another 20gig drive on teh side. Im trying to replace the 20gig with an 80gig but whenever i try that or even remove the 20gig i get a '1962: OS not found' error. The second drive doesnt contain anything relevant to the OS so why can't I replace the drives. I dont know much about jumper settings but the main drive didnt have any and the second was set to 'cable select'
