i have an ibm aptiva 2137-E34 with a 4.3 hard drive.i just bought a maxtor 13.6 gig drive, i want to install as my primary master drive. right now it is set as slave, and it only acknowledges 8.0 gigs out if 13.6 i used fdisk to partion and format the drive, since i couldn't get the software that came with it to work, it would just show me a maxtor screen and hang there. when i set it as master and boot the comp., nothing happens. what am i doing wrong? do i need a bios upgrade, if so where could i find it? my current bios is APM BIOS Version 1.2 i really wanted to remove the other drive, but this is all i could get to work so i am sort of stuck here. also if anyone can tell me how to get every thing from my old drive to the new. i know this is more than one question but if you guys can help me at all, i would sure appreciate it.
