install slave

  nobbie 16:47 13 May 2004

hi all, (long story, so i'll cut it short)my mate wants me to install a second harddrive which already has win XP on it,to his comp which has win 98 on, so how do i fit it, and format it so that he can keep his original win 98 hdd and use the win XP disc as a slave, he fitted them as is (obviously changing the jumpers, "he said")but the comp does not recognise the second disc,
he does not have original win 98 disc as it came ready installed.
hope this makes sense

Is it not being recognised in the BIOS or not by windows? If the file system on it is NTFS he will need to FDISK and format it before Windows 98 can see it

i presume it is not being recognised by windows,as my mate doesn't know how to get into the bios
