I have an old computer, one which I had not used for two years. The original IDE hard drive that the computer came with is dead and I found a SATA hard drive that I hardly made use of. I bought a bi-directional IDE to SATA converter to hook up the SATA hard drive with the IDE motherboard.
I plugged the adapter's IDE connector to the motherboard, the power cable into the adapter and the SATA cable from the drive to the adapter. Unfortunately, this does not work for me. When the BIOS loads, the primary master is none.
Can anyone help me?
