BIOS Wont Recognise HD
i have recently upgraded to a 160gb hard drive from an 80gb, my PC is about 4 yrs old but is in good condition and have upgraded regularily (AMD2000XP+, 512RAM, WinXP). I am trying to put my old 80gb HD into my dads really really old PC but it would not recognise it. my dads PC is: 350mhz processor, 64mb RAM, Win98, has two old HD's an 8gb and a 3gb (from our old old PC), i don't no exactly how old his PC is but i think its more than 10 yrs old.
Anyway, i tried connecting the 80gb to my dads PC to format it and reinstall windows 98 onto it but it would not detect the drive, i tried auto detect in BIOS and everything. this HD somehow got corrupted previously so i thought that was the problem, so i connected it to my PC which recognised it and i formated it on mine and installed win98 blah blah... it all works fine connected to mine but whenever i try to connect it to my dads PC it can never be detected, i've tried everything i can think of but have had no luck
i think maybe the motherboard is too old to detect a new(ish) HD or something but i dont really know. ANY help would be much apreciated as i am stumped
Thanx in advance
