I have formatted my hard drives. I have an old hard drive which is 30gb ST340014A. And is the Primary hard drive. My new hard drive that i want to make it as primary is WDC WD5000AAKS-75A7B0 which have 500gb

I formatted both of the hard drive. And i tried to make the new hard drive to primary(ide)

I only have 1 jumper thing. I place the old hard drive jumper to the second row. Still my WDC hard drive detects as SATA.

Is there any way to change my new hard drive to primary?

A helpd would be really appreciate it.

You need to change the priority of the drives in the Boot Order section of the BIOS setup.
