Hi, I aoplogise if this has laready been posted, had a look and couldnt find it.
I have just installed a 160gb hitachi deskstar as a second hard drive, its the first time I have ever done this although I have cloned and replaced a hard drive before.
My master is my maxtor 80gb. I changed the jumper settings and both drives are recognised in the bios with maxtor as primary and hitachi as slave (I am assuming this wouldnt be the case if the jumper settings were wrong?)
When loading into xp it recognised that a ned hard drive had been installed but I can't find it in my computer.
I went to disk managament and it is there as "disk 1" unallocated. I iniatalised the drive but I'm now stuck as of what to do next.
I was getting confused because in the c:? drive it gave me the option to format but didnt in disk 1. However it Went ahead with the partition and the drive has now been assigned a letter and is in the process of being formatted just now!!
