I got an old hard drive (Maxtor 160 Gig IDE) from a friend. It works fine however it is password protected and he cannot recall either the password or user name. Normally I would simply reset the CMOS BIOS but the computer I am putting it into is missing its BIOS jumper. I installed it on my other computer (one I'm using currently) as a slave with my DVD Drive as Master on the IDE cable. I have a SATA drive that is currently my master and where I'm booting from. All I want to do is to be able to format the drive so I can re-install an OS. The computer recognizes the Hard Drive in the BIOS and was booting from the drive until I changed it in the BIOS. I can find the Drive in the Device Manager and my computer has an up to date driver that should run it just fine. My computer displays my SATA hard drive and the recover partition. It also displays my disk drive and the remove-able disk drives (SD, Compact Flash). Any ideas?
