By Zilliak
Jun 15, 2010
  1. So i got my new Samsung hardrive today 500gb and ive been running 2 hardrives, 1 sata 80 gigabyte and a 160 IDE hardrive. So i plug in my new hardrive and get ready to move everything, but it wont get past the GIGABYTE screen logo and sometimes it will after 3-5 min of waiting and idk why. ? I need help on how to get this to stop, ive taken apart the entire computer, twice, and i ve tried everything.

    So one old IDE, one small SATA, and one new SATA ?
    Have you been able to format the Samsung hard drive?
    Have you tried removing the two drives, and installing the Samsung, then formatting and installaing that Samsung using a version of Windows or other operating system?
