If it shows in the BIOS, then for XP it won't show until you partiton and format it.
Hint: Press Start, Help and Support, enter Disk Management or Drive Management.
I'm trying to install a second hard disk into my 5 year old
Pentium 3 550 MHz. My original disk is 30 Gigs, and I'm trying to add a Maxtor 120 Gig harddisk as the secondary one. I dont have the full details right now because my friend tried the installtion for me. However the gist of the problem is this: Both hard disks are appearing on the bootup screen (the screen that first shows up when one restarts), the Maxtor 120 Gig as the slave, and the original 30 Gig as the master. However its not appearing under My Computer. To my knowledge the jumper settings are fine.
FYI I'm using Windows XP so the hard disk should be plug n play.
Can anyone advise?
