Yeah, I know, $5 on craigslist is too good to be true. Anyway, all I had to lose was $5.
So I picked up an 80 gig Seagate SATA HDD, used, of course. When I plug it in, my computer doesn't recognize it. When I try to boot with it plugged in (note: not even boot from it), the computer locks up in the the BIOS.
Is there any way to test this, format it, and perhaps get it working? Any ideas what could be the problem?
I'm running Mac OSX (10.6.6) and trying to turn this into a Win 7 dual boot machine.
