i'm using a 2002 IBM, with a 40 gig hard drive. i was trying to slave on a second 40 gig to double my storage.

i did so, and got, well, basically my computer's specs on my screen, so i removed the slave drive and noticed i didn't have a jumper on the master HD (the original drive on the computer) and so, i tried booting it up on just the original drive again, on the original 40 pin connector and original power supply number, and now i get an error saying "1692: no OS detected." when i boot it up.

i got this once before when i doubled the ram, but swapping the ram to the opposite slots fixed it. is there no saving what i had on the HD, or is it some incredibly easy fix i just never thought of?

hi thefriesguy
initially check whether any cd's or dvd's on the dvd drive if so, remove the disk and restart the computer
if still fails
go to bios and check whether both the hdd is detected and let me know
Thanks & Regards,
blissful chap

most of the things we desire are expensive, but the truth is :
the things that really make us happy are free:
and of course Linux....lol
