Hi-
  I have just installed a Western Digital Raptor S-ATA hard drive on an Asus P4C800-E mobo.  I installed Win XP pro on this hard drive.  Now, I have a 120 gb IBM hard drive I want to install as a second hard drive for storage.  I installed it and the Bios recognizes it, but I don't know what to do now so that Win XP recognizes the new hard drive.  Do I have to partition and format it?  Thanks for your help.
