I have a WD1200BB-CCCAA1 IDE Hard Drive
Trying to use it in a Dell Optiplex 755 Shell and motherboard.
Service Tag: 7V930G1
Express Service Code: 17127184897
The 755's motherboard only takes SATA connections (no IDE) so I am using a SYBA SATA to IDE Dongle to connect the primary SATA cable to the WD1200.
The jumper on the WD1200 is pulled designating "Master or Slave". It is a fully functioning HDD with windows 2000 loaded, but was never used with this configuration. I had two computers crash, and am combining functional parts to make 1 functional home computer...not used for much more than office/school work, so no need to put $ into upgrading.
The computer boots to the 'Dell' Boot Screen but will not recognize the WD1200.
gives following alert:
Alert! Failed to detect one or more drives during POST.
Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility
Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics
I've run the diagnostics, and everything comes back as good, other than it can't find the HDD.
