Last night I wanted to check to see what was on a old HD that use to be hooked into the pc as a slave drive. So I stuck it in my pc as the same. It just started making all these beeping noises and I don't think my pc would get past something on the boot screen.

Anyways I have since taken it out and put mine back in and now my slave HD is not working?? The computer will not boot past the dos scan screen. It just hangs on looking for boot on IDE 0...OK (or something like that).

Is there something I can do?
Thank you.

If it's in a newer pc you probably need to change the jumper setting to cable select or at least slave. My guess is you didn't change the jumper settings.

Try and enter the bios and manually define the hard drives.
Check that it seen in the bios and is not in conflict with the cd\dvd of any other device.
