I do what ive normally done in the past on other machines. I hookup the Maxtor to rhe secondary port on teh MB, set the jumper to Master and Im off to boot. Reboot I see teh drive fine maxtor 120.. Windows XP starts to load and I see its taking 4x times as long now! I finally get into XP and view teh drive, no problems.. I can see it fine, no device conflicts etc. I xfer around 200megs to the Maxtor and its reports it will take 10minutes! ugh! and on top of that I can do anything else or it horrible lags . so I couldnt even cancel the xfer so I hard reset. Come back.. I start to mess some programs and notcie liek my DVD player Lags and studders on films (from teh HDD .vob files). and IE and otehr porograms have a little pause from laoding .
