    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.
