I just built a new computer and I am barely a step above a newbie. The computer works and everything. My old computer's motherboard fryed, but I want to use the old HD in my new computer so I can save some files (about 20 gb worth). Anyways, my new HD uses SATA and my old HD uses IDE. I hooked up the SATA on the new one, loaded OS and everything works fine. When I hook up the old HD via IDE I get: Entering Setup... Select Boot Popup menu by pressing f8 Checking Nvram... Initializing USB Controllers..Done 1024mb ok Auto-Detecting Pri Master.. This is all it does. I have hooked up the old HD via IDE by itself and with the new HD via SATA simultaneouly and I get the same problem. I am unable to enter the BIOS to disable SMART. Normally, I press DEL to get to BIOS, I have tried that, F2, F8, but the above screen is all I get. Also, when the old harddrive first boots up, I hear some clickin sounds. My new computer specs: Asus K8N AMD 64 2800 HD 160 gb Hitachi Sata OS = XP Home Old HD (not sure) 60 gb IDE Thank, guys.
