Is it recognised by the BIOS?
Has He Partitioned and formatted it?
He says that he can't get into his BIOS; he's tried F12 & it doesn't say anything about getting into the BIOS.
He says he hasn't formatted & he doesn't know what Partitioned is, so he probably hasn't. I'm going to the computer shop he got it from tomorrow afternoon (GMT+10) so I'll ask the person there if that drive has already be formatted & what to do about not having any software. He was also the same person who put the primary drive in his computer, which is also the same hard disk, so he SHOULD know.
Thanks for your speedy reply
Make sure it is connected well. In windows press Start button then right click on Computer (My Computer in XP) click on Manage. On the left side Click on Disk Management
- You should see the HD - it is here were you can partitioned or format the drive.
Ah, sorry, I didn't see your reply!
He's at Disk Management, he's asking what to do now?
