I have a Hitachi 160gb 7200RPM harddrive, I swear I plugged everything perfectly but it still says it's not detected. And since it's not detected, I can't install windows XP on it.

jumpers correct? leads in nice and firm?
also is your processor newer than a p3?


edit.. and the motherboard is set to autodetect?

I am guessing you havent set the jumpers.

I actually have the exact same hard drive. Too bad it failed on me.
