Installing another Hard Drive - BIOS picks it up but Windows doesn't
Posted on 2004-04-10
I have just installed a new hard drive onto my computer. The problem is that it does not appear in Windows Explore however the BIOS picks it up fine.
Both the drives are put on the Primary IDE channel and the new one is the SLAVE one.
Both the drives jumpers are set to 'cable select'. (almost positive about that for the old one)
O.S. Windows 98
HDD. SAMSUNG SpinPoint
What I want to do is install another O.S on the other one (so I can choose which one I want to boot up) so any advice on that also would be very helpful after we have solved this problem!
p.s If the solution includes FDISK caould you explain what that means, and if I can select what drive letters I want for the new drive partitions.
