    Every time Xp Pro reboots or starts it says it has found new hardware and must reboot. I traced it to my slave hardrive formatted win 98 se fat32. Slave drive is a bootable drive and work fine. When this drive is removed the message goes away. In "Disk Management" you will see both as active hard disks. Disk 0 is the Primary drive (XP Pro). Disk 1 (win 98 se) is secondary storage.
    Disk 1 is "Not Initialized". When I try to right-click on the "Disk 1" icon and select "Initialize" it fails at the end of the process.
