HELP!! Primary Hard Disk Failure on a brand new drive!!
The hard drive that was in this computer failed, so I replaced it with a larger 160GB one and finally got the computer to recognize it. It actually took quite a while for the computer to boot up due to the fact that the computer just refused to recognize the hdd. The weird thing is that now it starts up to DOS after a little while and says "Primary drive 1 not found Secondary drive 1 not found Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility." Now, this is not a huge problem because if you just hit F1, Windows starts up fine and I am able to utilize the harddrive. I am just wondering if there is a solution to this or if F1 will have to be hit every time upon bootup. Thank you for your help!
