1/ If you plan to boot your OS from the SCSI drive, verify that your SYSTEM BIOS offers a BOOT FROM SCSI option, if not you may run into problems with the computer wanting to boot IDE first.

2/ confirm the jumper settings for any other IDE devices in your computer

EXAMPLE:

PRIMARY MASTER     (this would normally be your first hard drive
PRIMARY SLAVE

SECONDARY MASTER (this would normally be your CD-ROM drive)
SECONDARY SLAVE

set your new hard drive as one of the above (not using the same settings as anyother IDE device)

3/ make sure that your IDE cable is connected with PIN i oriented correctly (the stripe on the IDE cable denotes #1, on the hard drive pin #1 is toward the power connector.

4/ boot the system, enter the BIOS, make sure the IDE channel that you are using is ENABLED, then go to DETECT HARD DRIVE, accept the defaults, exit and save.

5/ Use the FDISK program to partition the drive, Use FORMAT to prepare the drive for data storage
