Hi guys, I just bought a 40gb WD hard disk today and I installed it as prescribed in Maximum PC mag(yay for learning how to do this wacky computer stuff myself). There is one problem though. The drive is recognized by the BIOS as primary slave drive, however, it gets no recognition in windows. When I do Compmgmt.msc and go to the disk management window, I see my master hd showing up normally, the slave drive shows up but says Unallocated. I cannot assign a drive name, cannot format, cannot create partition. I have connected and re connected the drive jumpers etc... but it doesn't change. OS is win2kpro. any help is appreciated and will get you into the good graces of the Puppy God. Later.
