I want to install two new
drives on the same
controller and configure them as master and slave. I installed drive one as master and drive two as slave. BIOS does not detect drive two on startup. What should I do next to troubleshoot drive two?
You would want to check your BIOS settings to compare them with what the drive and adapter manufacture suggests. If you do not have the documentation, check out their Web site. Also check your jumper and configuration settings on the drives and the adapters to make sure that you are not encountering some other type of conflict. While you are at it, double-check all of your cable connectors to make sure everything is as it should be.
