to format and clean the drive you want as slave. Set it as slave on the system board. Set the other drive as master and use the XP to format it and install the system.
Before you start, to be safe, remove the slave drive from the PC and install XP on the master. After it's up and running, connect the slave drive, let XP find it, then activate it.

I made a mess, needing to do some upgraging on my home built computer, I attempted to upgrade from ME to XP.

I want to reformat my two Maxtors, wipe them clean and start over with the larger as the master, smaller/slave,
