Installing an internal slave Hard Drive

Adding hard drive from old computer to new computer to transfer files to new computer hard drive.
I have not messed with hard drives in many years but they used to have little jumpers to make a HD a master or a slave. The one I want to install does not have any jumpers on it. It is a Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000, Serial ATA Hard disk drive. Model - HDS721075KLA330.
I have looked up the Quick inst. guide on line but it doesn’t say anything about Master/Slave.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

because master/slave doesn’t apply for sata drives :slight_smile:

My BIOS (hit DEL when booting) example: 2 x SSD HDD’s …
SATA 2 = Windows 7 OS Boot (or Master in old lingo)
SATA 4 = Secondary (or Slave in old lingo)

Swap the SATA Port connection around to reverse
