    hi,
    I have a current configuration that consists of C: -> OS and P: -> Program Files on HDD0.
    I ghosted the C: of HDD0 to HDD1 as i want to use C: on HDD1 and P: on HDD0. But it doesn't allow me to logon to windows 2000. I noticed that HDD1 has become E: instead of C:.
    any help?

    thanks

    Your boot drive will always be C:, so unless you jumper that drive to be the first drive (primary Master), you'll probably not be able to boot from it. Did you try swapping the master/slave relationship of the two hard disks?

    It would be nice to know what you did to fix it for future reference. That's how other folks reading these forums learn about this stuff. :)
