Please supply all the details such as IDE cable type, jumpers, etc. Since the drives are identical, clone with Clonezilla next time.
I made a clone of my primary drive hoping I could hook it up to the cable as the primary drive and boot from it. Nope , now both drives are listed as local and the system wont follow through without the slave being connected now. It will freeze after the initial loading and shows the dell loading bar . frozen . What do I do ? The system is very unhappy. Both disks are Caviar blue 500 gb and I used Acronis .Thanks
