Hard drive

About 6 months ago I installed a second hard drive. No problem. Now, at boot up, I get the message that my original hard drive is not found. After starting in an alternate mode I easily access my original drive but still get the message that it is not found. Any ideas? Also, since Windows 95 is on this drive I am considering moving it to the new drive. Will this cause any unforseen problems ? How easy is it to move?

In any case, don't MOVE Windows 95. There's a LOT of invisible
files on your hard drive. Windows NEEDS 'em. So, don't move
Windows 95, exept if you like bugs. It will be better to intall
Windowson the second drive from the original CD.

mdunkel...

I will have to disagree on 254637 answer here.  You won't be able to move windows from one drive to another, unless you use few applications that can make a perfect copy from one drive to another.

Therefore the proposed answer is WRONG.

When the question will be reopen back to other techs, I will post few applications that will do exactly what you want.
