Master harddrive is broken. So I took my other hard drive and configured the pins the same as the master and ran the cable to the mother board were the master was hook up. The computer won't boot up. I get a post beep, but nothing else. I get an error message of "master drive not detected". In cmos I have configured it to autodetect the drive.

Please help,
Phil

Hi,

When you said "configured the pins the same as the master", you mean the jumpers?

Are these HDD same model? If not, jumper setting varies by model and you have to set it as "primary master" or "Single".

When using a HD without a slave it is no longer a master. Go to the site for that HD and check for
jumper settings

Have you double checked the cable to make sure it's plugged in the right way on both ends?
Also (and I have to check), you did plug in the power cable to the drive, correct?
