    Surprised/Amazed

    I've tried all posibilities switching the jumpers, and the slots in the ide cable.
    Nothing worked.
    How is it like that?

    Is it IDE? Did you set the Master/Slave jumpers correctly? Also, did you enable auto-detect in the BIOS? If the BIOS is manually set, you'll have to tell the BIOS what's connected.

    I've tried all possibilities with jumpers.

    I have also tried in the bios with diferent configurations concening the first, the second and third boot devices.

    no changes.

    Some drives (Western Digital I think, possibly others too) have a special setting for "Single". This is different from master, where there must be a slave drive too. Check the manufacturers web site.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
