Hi, I have an old Seagate IDE HD that after a PSU failure stopped being detected. After troubleshooting I found that "sometimes" it gets detected by bios ONLY while being configured as SLAVE, but most of the times it does not get detected at all.
I got another HDD and installed windows with no problems, so it's not the cable or the motherboard.
The drive model is Seagate Barracuda ATA IV ST340016A
I was wondering what would happen if I start the computer with only the power cable connected to this faulty driveand then I plug the ATA cable while in windows?
