new hardrive error
I just purchased a Western Digital 320GB Caviar Blue sata hard drive.
I've installed it, and my BIOS recognizes it.
I didn't see anything that I could set it to master on the hard drive, and I didn't see anything that said about setting it to master in the instructions, so I figured you didn't have to set it to master. I set the drive to boot first and my slave drive to boot second, but something must not be correct.
When I try installing my new windows XP CD, this error occurs when it gets to "Setup is starting windows" it goes to a blue screen error and says
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer." error 0x0000007b
I can put jumpers on the back to enable SSC mode or PM2 mode. Do either of these set my drive to master?
Also, I have another SATA connector in my motherboard but not connected to a hard drive because it was too hard to reach so I didn't bother taking it out. Could this be the issue?
