Actually,, If you take the HDD and put it into another machine,, Prior to doing so,, you go into the "etc" and clear the enum folder,,,
once the drive is in the new Machine,, it will auto discover all the PnP gear in the box,,
Just have the drivers ready,,
in 5 minits youre up and running,,
There is obviously something more to this equation than is in the post,,
What type of drive are we talking here,, and does it have more than one Jumper on it,, Like fujitsu,, and some seagates??
plus,, is this drive damaged by chance? The reason your buddy gave it to you?
