    Need help installing hard drive

    Just bought a new hard drive, installed it correctly, windows detected it and installed the drivers. But I don't see it in My Computer... although the device manager sees it.

    So I open the case and realize I forgot to set the jumper.. only thing is... the hard drive didn't have a jumper!

    Is there any way to set it up in the BIOS so I can make it a slave drive? or do I really need a jumper?

    Fixed it.. Only needed to install the Manufacturer's tools and it's fine now

    Curious. What brand of drive? IDE or Sata?

    Thanks. I've got one of those I haven't installed yet. Your info will be useful.
