Afternoon all. I have just fitted a second harddrive. The drive is listed under device mngr, it shows as there in the PC setup F2,but not shown in the boot sequence list.Belarc lists it. Going from the start button, pressing computor it is not listed. The drives on my PC are SATA, the mobo is designed for sata. Could you tech chaps, please help me sort this out?. I have a thread running asking further questions about this subject. That question is when this drive is functioning and cloned from the original drive, how do I make this my "C" drive, using the other as backup. I will close the other thread so not to have threads running about the same subject Regards Aine
Thanks cross trainer.I have started the process off, I chose simple volume? should I have selected dynamic disk? The pc has allocated the drive "E" but as yet it does not show on computor page. regards Aine
To continue the saga! I have now located the drive, it reads in all areas.To make this the boot-able drive, do I put it first in the boot sequence? and can I just change the drive letter from E to C? ps I have cloned the drive from C using Acronis and confirmed the cloning. There just remains the question of C drive unallocated space?
thanks for your reply Crosstrainer. The OS is on the drive"E", there is no special reason to change it, I just thought it would be better to use the bigger drive as the main one. If it is a problem,I will leave it as it is. The final question is concerning the unallocated space on drive "C", if I made it a simple volume would it be absorbed into the main healthy space and would it be usable?
Sorry about the late reply Fruitbat.My partition is listed as 10.07GB Healthy (primary partition). Is there anyway it can be absorbed into the c drive to make it usable, not as a partition? Regards Aine
