I have recently constructed my first build. Everything is now working fine. I would like to incorporate my old HD (Quantum Fireball lct 30GB) for back-up. I am currently running well with my MB (ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe), 2 SATA drives in a RAID 0 array, windows XP. My CD and DVD drives are installed in the primary IDE slot. I have 2 other IDE slots on this MB. The SATA drives run on NTFS. My old HD is FAT32. I tried to install the old HD into the secondary IDE slot. It was recognized in the BIOS; however, XP would not acknowledge it as a hard drive.
Does it need to be switched from FAT32 to NTFS before installing it in my new computer?
Does it need a driver installed? I looked at Quantum.com but couldn't find it.
I tried to hook the old HD into the primary IDE slot, moved the optical drives to the secondary slot, made sure BIOS would boot from my working SATA drives first... BAD NEWS. Everything crashed. I couldn't even get into SAFE MODE. I had to reinstall XP.
Thanks for any help!
