    First make sure you have a way of connecting it. You might need another cable. Now look closely at the back end of the hard drive near the connector pins. You should see there somewhere the setting that it needs to be to be used as a slave. The little pin adjuster should also be on the back so move it to where the instructions say. Plug it in, screw it in, then boot up & see how far you get, whether you need to format it or whatever.

  4. This friend didn't happen to be 'Pete Townsend' from 'The Who' did it?

    I think that story went world wide.
