    60gb IBM HARD DRIVE: -

    I read somewhere that this drive has problems with XP, something to do with the drives on-board write caching setup. It it a IBM 60GXP? try disabling write caching.

    OK

    Decided to install this drive as c:/windows??
    widows is fine !but instead of it being c:/windows?its become g:/windows

    I have just bought the 80 gb version of your drive and it put mine as G drive as well even though I was installing windows to it. I got round this by disconnecting all my drives apart from the hard drive and a cd drive, then once installed I connected the other drives and that worked
