I have recently bought a new hard drive and went to install it in my pc only to find i had ran out of space on my motherboard to attach the ide ribbon cable.
so i get this 'pci peripheral controller card' and stick that in, wire up my hard drive and boot up my computer. i then install the drivers off the cd and restart my computer.
during bios there is an extra menu that appears, it gives me 2 options:
"Press <Ctrl-F> or <Ctrl-E> to enter setup utility or
Press <Esc> to continue booting"
at first i let it continue into windows, which it does. When my computer has finished loading up, i go to check if the HDD is there in 'my computer' but it isn't. I check the 'device manager' to see if the pci card is there and it is and is functioning fine apparantley.
but my HDD is no where to be seen!
what can i do to install my HDD? (i only want to use it as a slave drive for storing files)
