The second hard drive installed was originally the master, until XP hung on a reinstall after an agp440.sys error, and since then the setup utility on the XP CD never saw the hard drive again. I got an identical replacement from dell (WD 120G) and formatted, installed a fresh copy of XP, then attached the drive with the bad O/S as the second drive. I was hoping to recover some of the 60G of data I had on the drive. BIOS sees them identically, Primary 0 120 GB and Primary 1 120 GB. But when the system boots, the operating system doesn't see it, can't seem to locate it through disk management either. I have the correct jumpers in place, verified that on Western Digital's site....anyone have any suggestions ? thanks

just guessing but it was a PRIMARY partition before, perhaps if you had a program like Partition Magic you could make it a LOGICAL partition and it would be recognized.
