Every time Xp Pro reboots or starts it says it has found new hardware and must reboot. I traced it to my slave hardrive formatted win 98 se fat32. Slave drive is a bootable drive and work fine. Both drives are on same ide cable. When this drive is removed the message goes away. In "Disk Management" you will see both as active hard disks. Disk 0 is the Primary drive (XP Pro). Disk 1 (win 98 se) is secondary storage. Disk 1 is "Not Initialized". When I try to right-click on the "Disk 1" icon and select "Initialize" it fails at the end of the process.
