see if I could get it working. But every time it boots, it doesn't
find the hard drive, and just gives me the message "Primary hard disk
drive 0 not found-Press F1 to retry boot, press F2 for setup". I know
it's not the IDE cables, I replaced all of them, and I flashed the
BIOS to make sure nothing nasty was on there. Any ideas as to what's
Re: Primary Hard Disk Drive 0 Not Found
Check the jumper settings on your hard drive, to be sure you're not
accidently using Cable Select, or Slave.
Check the BIOS, and make sure that all IDE devices are set to "auto".
On this old Dell, It will probably complain that primary hard drive
1, and secondary hard drive 1 is not found. After you get it sorted,
you can disable the unused IDE devices.
Also: be sure you have a working hard drive, and that it's plugged in
to the primary IDE channel.
