Still need help Please,,,,
XP recoconises my other HDD but how do i access it and boot????

You want to boot into ME on the other drive?

You could change the boot order in the BIOS.

Is there any special reason you want to actually boot the second drive, or do you just want to access the data on it?

Have you checked the "jumper settings" for each drive?

PS - why did you have two drives with ME on?

Are you sure you did have two drives with ME on - or was the second drive just for storage?

Hi DieSse yes i want to be able to boot into other drive that is ME. but also because it has a lot of files i need,

(1) not cheked jumpers as all was ok until XP install.

DieSse... One was for my own use, the other for kids etc

If you go into the BIOS you will probably be able to change the system to boot from the second hard drive.

Or you can set up dual-booting click here
