I have added a second hard drive but it does not show in my computer. When I go in to computer management it says c then underneath what i assume as the new hard drive as unallocated. What do i do please?

What make of drive is it?

It is a western digital sata drive, exactly the same as the one already in the pc. I can see it when I boot up but not when pc is on.

You may need to go click here for information about initializing and formating the drive.

Ok it seems to be done and I can see it as 'G' in my computer. How do I go about putting an O/S on this drive? I tried it and booted from cd but in only gave me the option of installing on 'C' and not 'G' the new drive. Thanks.

Why do you want another OS on the drive do you wish to dual boot between two different operating systems?

Yes I do.

Have set the jumpers at the back of your second drive to slave?

I haven't touched the jumpers I have put it straight in.

SATA not EIDE master slave therefore not releant.

What OS have you got already XP? what second OS are you trying to install on the second drive?
