CMOS manual hdd setup
I just traded in my old parts for a whole new system and was in the process of putting it together last night. I got to startup and solved some minor problems, but now the darn mainboard wont detect me hard drives. I figured out that this is probably solveable by formatting the drives, but I do not want to do that until I back up some files from my primary drive to my secondary. So the only other way is to manually detect the drives in CMOS. However, when I open the correct page for my primary drive, it will not let me input the data needed such as the capacity, cylinder, head, precomp, landing zone, sector etc. How do I access those fields?
Also, my hard drives do not have the information printed on them that I need and I no longer have the owners manual. Does anyone know of a site that will give me ALL specs on my hard drives?
Please, 2 days without a computer are hell. I'm using my work comp for goodness sake.
