Any lik to the ribbon for the 2 drives?
Yes if it both are IDE
drives then you would need a dual ribbon to hook them up. Below I am including pictures of the different types of drives and of the IDE ribbon
Top pic is of a dual connector ribbon.
Bottom picture top is of a IDE
drive and bottom is a SATA
drive. As you can tell the connectors are entirely different so no way to mistake them.
Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso
type, use ImgBurn
to burn .iso
file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.Thanks to Broni for the instructionshttp://usasma.vox.co...iagnostics.html
