Okey, first time posting here ^.^. I have a small problem with my new hard drives i bought (2 x SATA 500GB's) and i have already an IDE HD in my computer (set as master with slaves present)and an IDE DVD Drive (set as slave). When I try to change anything in my BIOS, I can't do anything in my BIOS. Help anyone?

"When I try to change anything in my BIOS, I can't do anything in my BIOS."

care to elaborate?

what doesn't work? you can't boot? you can't access the drives? did you map the drives in the drive manager?

Unless you're using the new drive(s) for the OS, just install them, don't do anything in the BIOS...To see them in Windows you'll need to partition and format them. Right click on the "Computer" icon>Manage>Disk Management. Choose one of the drives and partition/format, then do the same with the second...Done deal!

It's ok guys, thx for the replies. I actuall left out the IDE HD out now because he was gettin old ( 8yrs O.o' ), and now have put the SATA ones in but now he only sees my primary HD.
