My computer is a Compaq Deskpro 2000.
Original HD is a 3GB Western Digital. On this HD, I have 2 partitions. The first (C Drive) boots to Win95. The second partition (D Drive) boots to WinNT.
I have the second hard drive installed, a Seagate 8.4 GB. However, some really strange things are happening.
What I have checked:
1) Latest version of BIOS
2) Correct Jumper settings
3) Correct Cable Configuration according to the manual and directions
Single Hard Drive - 2 partitions
1) C Drive - Windows 95 - Active Partition
2) D Drive - Windows NT
1) Win95 and Windows NT on Master Hard drive with 2 partitions
2) Slave (new) Hard drive has 6 partitions of about 1.4 GB per partition.
1) When I boot to Windows 95, C and D drive are same as original. However, the CD ROM is NOT found. All other partitions are viewable.
2) When I boot to Windows NT, C drive is the same, but what was the D drive in 95 becomes the I drive in NT and the D Drive becomes a partition on the new hard drive with all other partitions viewable. So, many of the program settings are messed up. The CD ROM is, however, found.
3) If I login to the network, the F drive will be a network drive and hide the F partition of the new drive. All other partitions are visible. If I do not login to the network, the F drive is seen as a partition on the new hard drive.
The type of CD-ROM is a Compaq 24x CD ROM revision ZD18 MATSHITA CD- CR-5850.
1) How do I keep the same drive names no matter which OS is booted?
2) How do I view all partitions when logged into the network?
3) How do I always see the CD-ROM?
4) How do I install more operating systems? I need on the new drive - 1 Win95, 2 Win 98, 2 Win NT, 1 LINUX.
No recommendations for third party software unless you give me time to buy it, install it, and test it, then give you points.
Thanks in advance for your help.
