Purchased used Maxtor 60GB HD/ have question?
I picked up a used Maxtor HD. I installed it as a slave but upon boot the BIOS tells me "smartdisk failed on Slave drive, back up now, F1 to continue".... So I go into windows and run tests on the drive and so far all tests show the disk to be fine?? I did a complete scan with Norton Disk Doctor and it did a full surface scan and found NO problems with the drive. I re-booted and again the boot screen shows the "Smartdisk failure for the Slave Drive, hit F1 to continue."

down load the maxtor drive test and run it,
does the bios support a 133MB transfer rate,
how does the bios list the drive at startup,
what is the DMA mode set atKN1-Extreme

Dual Ultra DMA 66/ 100 IDE controllers integrated in ICH5 - Have run several 133 TR drives without that error, it just runs them at ATA/100
List's the drive just as my other drive
chkdsk /r - Reported nothing wrong with disk
