IDE channels - again

to rennaissance:

I've connected as you suggested. However, the old drive is causing probs. When I open Win explorer, it just about comes up with drive info, but crashes as it appears to try to display the slave info. Any ideas? Could it be because this drive was initially a bootable one? Haven't been able to format it yet.

I don't know the history here... but anyway!

What OS? If XP, boot with the OS CD and format the disk before Windows loads. Be careful to format the correct one though...

If win98, get a bootable floppy, and using it, do the same.
