Hotswap Method For Hitachi 47d
Posted 04 October 2006 - 02:49 AM
I put my samsung drive into 0800 mode and I get it to start up with windows, I am also able to get a drive letter for it. So I quickly swap the SATA cable from my samsung to the hitachi (with the power also on and video plugged in) but my computer starts freezing and the drive letter disappears as well.
I've also tried using Slax's CD boot but I cannot find a way to boot from the Hitachi drive with my Sata drive. I have a VIA8271 chipset (I think, but I've used it to flash my samsung properly)
Can I get some help trying to get this hitachi drive to be visible in windows?

if you are scared of the 2 wire, then get a connectivity kit.
read the tutorials and dont mess anything up,
search mode b and then scroll down a little bit and you might be able to find how to do the 2 wire, but make sure you do it right or you will brick your drive.

Do I have to obtain 1 or 2 wires?
If its just 1 wire, I'm assuming I connect one end to 0, and the other end to 9. and pull out at least one end of the wire once I start up the 360.
Do you also have to push out the wire out just like the tutorial or can you just slip it in?
If its with 2 wires, do you just connect one wire to 0 and the other one to the 9 and connect the 2 wires and when you start up the 360, you jsut break the connection between the two?

But I couldnt get my computer to recognize the Hitachi drive.
When Windows started up, i went to device manager and my VIA6421 had the yellow exclaimation mark
I disabled it and enabled it but i could not get the hitachi drive to recognize
How can I get windows to recognize the drive after I get it into modeb
