Default Two Simple Questions

1. I have a Maxtor MaxLINE Plus II 250 GB SATA hard drive. It powers up and SATA is enabled in Windows 2000 and the BIOS. However, it cannot be detected. It makes clicking noises at the Windows 2000 startup screen. How can I make it work?

2. I have 6 Socket-370 processors, however, they are all Tualatin core-based. Where can I get an FC-PGA to FC-PGA2 converter? Why can't the Tualatins work in Coppermine motherboards?

Have you made sure the SATA drivers are installed? It can be enabled in the BIOS but if you haven't installed the SATA drivers to the drive that has the OS on it yet then it won't be recognized.

Also have you made sure you formatted it? Drives won't be seen if they aren't formatted at all.

Can't answer your second question, sry
