My slave HD drive suddenly has changed specs
I would appreciate your opinion.
I have two old Packard Bell computers; one of them had a failure. I changed their two HD's (master and slave) and the alive PC changed the specs of the slave HD from the real HD (D) to External (D) so on switching the unit ON it asks to insert the unit D. Obviously from thins point nothing I can do for C is the slave HD.
Just for additional information, I changed their 3V batteries for new ones and I switched each unit on and through F3 I put the Bios to the default values.
My feeling is I do not know how to "tell" the computer that this disk is not an external drive but the primary slave.
Can you kindly guide me on how to fix this problem?
Thank you !
