==========> boot on a floppy and run fdisk. see if you have an option 5 in there. if so, goto drive 2 and see what that tells you. if you aren't seeing option 5 then the drive's not being recognized for some reason. and in the bios, see if you can make sure everything concerning drives is enabled. if you can't get it like that, call me and i'll help you get it going.

One other thing to check: Make sure the original drive is set to "Master". It may be set to "Cable Select" which will screw up detection of all drives by the BIOS.
