: I bought a new hard disk for my computer, but when I've installing I have a problem. The hard disk was recogzined by bios but when Windows start the hard disk isn't recognized. I have a bios for award, windows 98 and the hard disk is Western Digital WD200 (20GB).
: Thanks.

Hope this is fixed by now.
Anyone else having this difficulty, if you look up the Western Digital website technical section you will find that the jumpering for a single drive is not Master, but neutral, ie pins 3 to 5, or, 6 to 4. Pity the drives do not come with information. Mine is now working.

eg 9 7 [5 3] 1

10 8 6 4 2
