You should not need to use an installation program unless you were re-partitioning or reformatting the drive.
What operating system is your 'good computer' - there may have been an issue recognising NTFS partitions with a FAT system.
According to this document - http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/iguide...a/u5isheeta.pdf
-your jumper setting :[:]::[power] is Cable Select.
You can use Cable Select if you have an 80 wire IDE cable (usually different coloured connectors) and plug it into the black connector to be the Master drive.
The first step is to get the drive recognised in the BIOS. Connect the drive then hit the Del key to enter the 'System Setup' program. Click on Advanced>IDE configuration and check that your hard drive is detected. If it is not detected then you need to recheck the jumper setings and the cable connections. If it is still not detected after trying a different cable, different IDE ports and all sensible jumper settings then you must conclude your hard drive is damaged and needs replacement.
