I have a Hard Drive that I set up as a slave today on another computer (YAY for me - Never did that before.) At least, physically, I followed the instructions and the comptuer still booted up properly. I removed the jumper from the slave (Seagate) and put the jumper on the primary on the right one, and then, hooked up the IDE (I think that is what it's called) and the power, and it came up as normal. In the BIOS, I set up everything on Auto.
*On a side note, this computer, that I bought used, always makes you hit f1 to boot up or f2 to setup - says that it cannot read the hard drive or something like that, but, always boots up.*
Anyway, windows comes up find, but, I only see the A drive and the C Drive (can't even see the CD drive, now that I think about it. (I think this computer has an incomplete version of windows on it.
What can I do to read/recognize/salvage/get data off this slave hard drive?
