I`ve just installed a small Maxtor Hard Drive to use as slave/backup. It appears to be working fine and I have full access to the drive through "My computer". The problem is everytime I reboot the PC XP recognises the drive as new hardware and tries to get me to install it.
Do I need to use Fdisk to install the drive or does that just format/partition the drive?
Tried that and as far as I can see everything looks fine apart from the fact that whenever I start the PC I am prompted to "install my new hardware" even though it appears to be installed in every other way!
I have the similar prob - everytime I boot up the found new hardware wizard tries but fails to install bus mastering. It must be a problem with windows xp but it does not appear to be mentioned anywhere.
