Do you think this problem has anything to do with the J8 Jumper settings which specify the Master/Slave relationship between HDs?
Is it possible to set my SATA HD as the Master and my old HD as Slave? According to the comments on the top of my SATA HD, the Master/Slave jumper is not required for SATA. Do I need to have any pins jumped on my SATA HD if I want to setup a Master/Slave relationship?
BTW, pins 5 and 6 are currently jumped on my SATA HD. My old HD is not connected yet.
I have also noticed the following option under Advanced BIOS Options: Hard Disk Boot Priority
I think I can use this option to select the first HD to boot If I can setup the Master/Slave relationship.
The following is also written on the top of my SATA HD:
"jumpered pins 1 and 2 disable SSC (Spread Spectrum Clocking)"
"jumpered pins 3 and 4 anable PM2 (Power-Up in Standby)"
Does anyone know what SSC and PM2 are for? Do I need them?
