Hi hope someone can help
I have just acquired a second hand pc infinitely better than the one I have
However it had a very dodgy version of windows so I performed a clean reinstall with a legal copy.
This machine was already fitted with a slave hard drive which was formatted and operational before I did the install.
Now that I have reinstalled xp will not see my slave drive.
Initially the machine was running on xp pro 64 bit but I have installed xp pro 32 bit.
Could this have any bearing?
Have been into the BIOS and enabled SMART but it still wont see the disc, I have not changed the jumpers so I cannot understand why it will not appear.

Any help welcome

Thanks

Welcome to TSF.

Double check the jumpers - master at the end of the cable, slave at the middle.

Replace the (80-wire) ribbon cable.

What brands are the HDDs?
