Jumper Settings for the Installation of Hard Disks and CD, CDRW, and DVD Drives

The following information helps set the required Cable Selection settings on a hard drive or optical drive. Each hard drive setting is used by the Computer's BIOS to tell the system where the hard drive is located and what priority it has in relation to the other drives. Most hard drives and computers that were manufactured after 2002 probably do not need to have the hard drive jumper settings changed - this includes all SATA drives.
To check the hard drive jumper settings or to physically set hard drive jumpers, continue using this document.
Identifying cable connections and insuring proper jumper settings

The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer.
 caution:
This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a noncarpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (such as a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
