Hi
I have just installed a 2nd hard drive which is a Western Digital, and this is the slave. My first hard drive has Win XP pro I installed it. The Bios recognizes the 2nd hard drive, but I don't know what to do now so that Win XP recognizes the new hard drive. Do I have to partition and format it? Thanks for your help.

Traditional or trendy. FDISK and FORMAT, or use the manufacturers website if there is a downloadable program to do this for you.

Go to Disk Management,2nd hard drive should be shown ,you can then partition and format from there.
