I’m feeling kinda stupid and silly, not being able to get my new Seagte drive working… I have been trying multiple arrangments of jumper settings and such, and I think I may have gotten it right, but now I can’t format the damn thing.
I currently have the jumpers on my ‘master’ to master, and the ‘slave’s’ jumpers set to cable select.
The BIOS recognizes both drives, and Windows Hardware Manager shows both drives. However Window’s Disk Management is unable to initialize the new drive… (also showing it as a 10GB, not 80GB.)
I dont’ have a floppy drive, so I can’t use FDISK. Also, my XP CD is in Prince Rupert, so I can’t even get XP setup to partition and format the drive. Any ideas on software that will?
I’m downloading a copy of Partition Magic 8, via torrent right now.
Please and thanks
