having trouble with installing 3rd hard drive
Posted on 1998-09-27
Ok. To start, the new drive is fine. It is brand new right out of the box. I have my ide drive setup as such:
1st controller primary 6.4 gig western digital
1st controller secondary Memorex 24X CDROM
2nd controller promary 2.5 gig western digital
2nd controller secondary 3.1 gig western digital <-- The one thats being a problem.
When I set the cmos for all the correct (info from the hard drive label) and then boot into windows. I cant see the last drive and there is a conflict in the device manager with the 2nd controller.
But if I do not set it in the cmos (leave it as none)it shows up fine in windows, but apps like partition magic cant see it (since it gets the info from the cmos).
And I know that's not how it should be.
I have tried just about everything from new drive cables, moving the drives around. Switching jumpers and everything that i can think of.
Some one gimme a hand, I am lost here
Thanks in advance
