How do i install a HD?

Cables and all that are connected no problems at all.....i can hear it boot up in all....

insert a wb install disk (3.1) and run HDtoolbox....
it looks on scsi device but does not find the HD....
thing is i had this on my PC for a short while for an Amiga emulator (Amithlon) so im not sure if that could affect it...
i got IDEFix 97 no idea what to do with it tho....

ty anyone

Please give more details. SCSI or IDE drive ? Which Amiga model ? Built-in or 3rd-party controller ?

If IDE, did you set the master/slave jumpers correctly ?

If SCSI, did you set the SCSI-ID and termination jumpers correctly ?

If you use a controller that is not driven by scsi.device, you need to tell HDToolbox the name of the driver. Check HDToolBox's tooltypes.

Try HDInstTool instead of HDToolbox. It knows several 3rd-party drivers.

You already have downloaded IDEfix, so start the program FindDevice, click on Show All Drive Types and search your HD. On the left is a list of all drivers and on the right is a list of all drives connected to the selected driver.
