Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook ?

I can't figure out how to set my hard drive as "Master", I don't see anything like that in the bios menu. Where do I find it?


Answers :

Your laptop has space for one hard drive, so there is no "master" there is just the hard drive. I have given you a link to the service manual for your laptop below. Just copy and paste in your internets browser. Make sure to make a copy for yourself for future reference.

Hi Donovan,

In order to save you a lot of time and trouble, I wonder if you might comment me back as to what you are trying to accomplish. Answering a these questions will help too.

  • Please confirm we are talking about a thinkpad.
  • \015\012
  • How many hard drives do you have
  • \015\012
  • Does the machine boot
  • \015\012
  • Does your CD work
If you have one drive and it boots, its master

Unless you have two Hard drives, the master / slave is sort of moot. There is also the CS option. This is why I need additional info.

Best regards,
Mike
