View Full Version : Reinstall of 2nd Hard Drive
11-20-2001, 12:41 PM
I had to reinstall my OS on my Gateway piece of crap, and now I want to reinstall my 2nd hard drive (my own upgrade), but the computer is not detecting the new hardware - and it's only data, so I should be able to just plug n' play? yes?

Everything's connected correctly
Jumper setting on drive and anything else on the chain is correct
Drive appears in the BIOS

The first two are correct, but it does not show up in the BIOS.
