I had xp on c drive and vista on d drive deleted all partions on both drives using xp cd but xp would only reinstall on the slave d not the c drive i have disconnected the slave drive [ d drive] windows now installing on the c drive. process not finished yet. If the install goes ok will i have problems with the slave drive if i refit it and try and delete the d drive. what would be the best course of action please.
xp now reinstalled ok on c drive . the d drive is theslave hdd. if i reconnect ti the pc and goto management settings i hope to reformatt it but concerned that the mbr settings may corrupt the c drive should this now be safe, now that c drive has been reinstalled?
thanks for the above, disconected cdrive master used xpcd to delete all pastitions on the slave d drive. then started pc with both connected pc failes to boot no disk drive detected, as soon as i disconect the slave drive it boots into xp. the slave has all its partitions deleted. anyone assist please with this odd scenario.
both hdd worked fine as master and slave in xp, then as xp and vista on the slave in duel boot,with problem. jumper are set to master/slave. problem only started when drives wiped clean for reinstal to clear vista beta.
