I'm wanting to install a new hard drive in addition to the one I currently have. How woudl I go about doing this? Is it just a case of putting it in connecting the wires and then switching the computer on? Will I have to go to dos to format it or can windows xp do this?
The problem all along was my old hard disk - it had been set as a slave all along despite being the master for some reason. So thanks for trying to help me with non-existing problems. The new disk is on formatting now.
