I tried to install a new WD 800JB 80 GB hard drive on my computer, but the BIOS does not recognize either the new 80 GB hard drive I set up as the master or the old 20 GB WD hard drive I set up as the slave. I tried manually configuring the hard drive in the BIOS as suggested in the WD install guide, but that didn't work. I tried setting up the 80 GB as the only drive, but that didn't work either. So I put the 20 GB back as the only HDD. I couldn't find any helpful info in the FAQ's on the WD or ASUS sites. Any suggestions?
In CMOS setup, set Type or Detect, whatever the first parameter setting is to AUTO, and enable LBA, sometimes its the last setting depending on the BIOS, save your settings and restart the machine. Do this for both drives.
Details, Details, Its all in the Details, If you need help, Don't leave out the Details.
Yes, I checked the jumpers already. I set the new drive to master and the old one to slave.
I downloaded the latest bios from ASUS for the CUBX motherboard. The latest revision is 1007 dated 2-9-01. My old BIOS is dated 4-00. I haven't had a chance to flash the BIOS yet. I had to use a friend's computer with Win 98 to make a bootable floppy since I have Win ME (and NT at work) that won't let you make a bootable floppy. I hope the newer BIOS will recognize the 80 GB drive. I'll let you know when I try it this weekend.
By the way, I have run my 700E at 865 but it hangs when I try to run it at 933. Maybe I need to increase the core voltage. But that's another topic.
