After i remvoe my 80gb fat32 slave, and reboot my system, on xp, the system asks for my windows cd to boot? My primary is a 160gb ntfs.

So I have to reconnect my 80gb slave to bring the system up.

I ran compmgmt.msc and it indicates my primary is 0, and slave is 1.

So why can't I disconnect my 80gb slave, without screwing my whole system

up? The slave is a 1 year old maxtor! Help please

with the the slace drive in place, try uninstalling it from device manager first, then shut down and remove it, then restart

Also, make sure that the master is set to master or single drive and NOT cable select
