Default SATA slave

I am not experienced with SATA drives. We had one die overnight. Is it possible to slave it and try to recover data like you can an IDE or is it a lost cause? All I get when I try to boot is Disk Read Error and a black screen. I ran the DPS self test and it said error code 7 replace the drive.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

You dont have slave SATA drives they are all masters, you need to go into the BIOS and change the hard drive boot order so:

1.broken hard drive
2.working hard drive

to

1.working hard drive
2.broken hard drive

Cool. I am trying a repair install of windows right now and hoping (probably not gonna happen) that it will work. If not I'll do that and see if I can get what is needed. Thanks.
