I just put in a second hard drive and I set the original hard drive that was in here as the Master and the second hard drive I just added as the Slave... In both the BIOS and the jumpers on the Back of the HD's. I am able to boot up fine on the Master and I can Boot up fine on the slave... as long as I Unplug power from the Master. Is this normal????
When Using the OS from the Master I am unable to see the Slave from the My Computer icon (as if I were trying to look at the c: drive, D: drive a: drive ect...) Why is this?????
UPDATE - Think I found out why - Master was set to FAT32 and the Slave was set to NTFS... could that be why????
I wanted to use the OS installed on the Master HD as the Operating system for the computer, so I Formatted the slave HD. Now I am unable to boot from the Slave HD [Which is because I Formatted it - that was expected] but from the OS on the Master HD I cannot see the Slave as a seperate drive, better than that I cant even see it at all????
MY plea for help
What must I do to be able to use the OS on the Master HD for normal Pc Functions like I am doing right now, and then just have the added HD as an extra drive or drive letter for additional space under my computer (remember that the New additional hard drive is blank right now).
Master HD OS is Windows 98SE
