Start over. Clone the drive. Otherwise you'll still be looking for drivers (as you are now). Just clone the drive for a spare bootable drive. If you only want the drive as an external storage device you don't need an OS on it.
Just wondering how you installed XP on another drive.
I have a wired Netgear RP614v4 router,only 3 weeks old that's connected to my Desktop (XP Pro) and my Laptop (Vista Home Premium) and they both work fine ,recently I decided to take a new blank Western Digital H.D. I had setting around and install my XP Pro on it and then use it as an external backup drive after I had it setup with all my favorites and apps on it ,right now the main H.D.in the case is unplugged and the spare H.D. is plugged in and set up to be the master,after installing XP on it I tried to activate XP only to find out that I couldn't get an internet connection so I went to my network connection settings in the control panel and right clicked on properties, however all it showed was a blank page no network icon or anything which was strange but what's even stranger is when I bypassed the router and plugged the ethernet cable into my ADSL modem I still couldn't get any internet connection so I'm wondering if I have a computer problem or does the spare H.D. which is currently set up as the master need to be configured to the router in order for the router to see it and give me internet access ? unless Iv'e overlooked something obivious (which wouldn't be the first time)Iv'e run out of things I know to resolve this problem, so any help in resolving this issue would be very much appreciated.( Generic Comp,Intel D865 PERL M.B.,Intel P4 3.06 gig processer,2 gigs of ram, XP PRO w service pack 3& I.E.7
