HP Mini 1000 hard drive replacement - BIOS won't recognize new drive

Trying to install a Hitachi C4K60 into my Mini 1151NR and the BIOS says "not support" when I go to hard drive detect. I've tried connecting the ZIF cable every possible way and still am having no luck.

 

At first I thought I might have received a drive that was DOA - so I bought another one. Now I have 2 C4K60's the BIOS can't see.

 

The original drive was a Toshiba MK8025GAL - but after having gone through two of these in a year in a Netbook that never gets moved (!), I figured I'd try a Hitachi. Both drives are ATA-7 (PATA), some I'm not sure where the problem is.

 

Specs for the old drive and new drive are below. TIA

Hitachi looks like it uses less power also, are there any jumpers on the drive?

 

It might just be incompatible, rare but I have seen it before.
