Western digital made me feel so dumb
Well I just want to share my experience with wd's hard drive. It got a new jumper setting option which is Master w/ slave and master - single drive. I've set it to master w/ slave using my old maxtor as slave, I've installed winxp and it worked fine but after the first boot my system drive letter is g: and I don't feel comfortable with that... to make story short I disconnected the maxtor HD proceed to full reinstallation but It failed and it is always restarting over again booting with my optical drive skipping the prompt to press a key for cd emulation. Now I figured it out that wd drive is not happy without a slave in that mode. A simple mistake cause me a lot of time figuring out what was wrong. Just sharing one of my dumbest experience.
No Sacrifice, No Victory.
