post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok, here's the stiuation. i built my comptuer yesterday, and installed xp pro on one of my seagate ata 160g drives. after everything was finisehd and i load xp, only one of my drives shows up in my comptuer. menaing, i can only use one of my drives. both show in device manager, but only one has the option to enable/disable.

how can i get this second drive working?


coudl it have happend that it took the entire 160 g drive to install xp, and is using that only for xp?

also, i made sure the jumpres on the slave drive were correct.
