Hi,
Just installed XP on a computer and can't get it to see the second hard drive. Was working fine with Win 98 and Win ME, they saw the hard drive fine. It's a 4.5gig that came with the Compaq computer.
I used NTFS file system during installation and it found the floppy disk, both c.d. rom's and the zip drive fine.
Tried the add new hardware wizard and it won't find it by itself.
Tring to avoid pulling the lid to get the required info to install it manually, if it would see it then.
The 2nd hard drive was formatted in FAT32.
Any ideas?
