After 2 weeks of struggling, I installed windows (Windows XP Media) into new hard drive. Here is problem I have.
I'm trying to use new hard as primary windows hard drive and use old one as just second backup storage. I plugged both into SATA ports and started windows. (EXTREMELY SLOW - hope nothing gets damanged).
I see second hard drive in My Computers. Even when window is up and running I notice exteme lag... when I click on second drive I get "the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error"
I see both under Device Manger and "Working properly"
Is there a setup I'm missing? I hope I don't accidently delete data in my old drive.
Please help~ how do I make two SATA drive coexist happily in one computer.
(btw, I don't think both are set up to be RAID - so both are non-RAID)
Any help is greatly appreciated!
