Installing hard drive Update

  edgie 13:52 09 Mar 2003

I've just purchased a second hard drive (samsung 80GB) and set it up as the slave and checked in the setup that the computer recognises it, which it does. I now believe i have to format the hard drive but when i tried this using Fdisk (windows XP) it would not recognise that I had another hard drive in place and tried to fdisk my c drive. The drive is present in the bios but not in 'my computer'. Am i doing it right can anyone offer any advice or help me out.

Go to start and right click my computer. Now pick the manage tab. Pick disk management in the left pane, this will show the disks in the right pane. Right click on the new drive, scroll down and pick format.
