Drive Swapping
Hi,

I’m running a dual boot with XP Home and Win 98.
I have just purchased another H/D which I want to use as a medium to backup onto from both
systems.

I disconnected the 98 drive and cabled onto the new H/D
They are set at auto select in BIOS

On boot up both H/D are recognized but when I open My Computer there is only one H/D “C”
Win XP

When I change back to 98, both XP and 98 are shown.

What am I not doing right????

When you are in Windows XP type:
Start > run > diskmgmt.msc

or

Right click My Computer > click Manage > Expand Storage > Click Disk Management

both do the same thing.
