    I bought a new maxtor 250 gig hd and set it to be master drive C. I had a 80gig hd that came with my dell. I set it to slave drive E for storage reformatted it clean. For some reason on restart or bootup chkdsk runs on drive E. Finds no problems. Never has. I am running xp home sp2. any help would be appreciated.

    go to a command prompt and type chkntfs /x d: if your drive is assigned another letter other than D replace it with the correct one. Then reboot
