I am attempting to upgrade to a WD10EARS using the rosswalker checklist.
I have connected the original 160GB and the new 1TB to a windows PC
(ASUS p5ql pro motherboard). Running 64 bit Vista.
The bios initially sees the drive, but then I get:
"Primary Slave disk error, Hit F1 to continue"
If I hit F1, I get "please wait" on a blank screen.
I have waited 30 minutes and no further action.
When I disconnect the 1TB drive, and restart, windows boots and
WinMFS sees the 160 GB drive just fine.
Is this HD dead? or is there some other step I am missing.
