i have a comp with 2 hard drives
i installed xphome on one of them (the master) but windows 2000 had already been installed on the slave drive, the installation went ok and xp was on there then for sum unknown reason it decided to come up with an error every time it boots up! and then when i click send report or dont send it restarted,this happened twice then when it booted up it said it had lost a file and could not boot, so i decided to install xp again when it came up wich partition it wanted to install on i had too and they both said they were full- so i deleted them as there is an option for then it formated a drive and installed xp on but the other drive isnt there how do i get it back?

Right click on My Computer then Manage then Disk Manager. It should be there but as you deleted the partition you will need to partition and format it.

Start - run - type diksmgmt.msc

windows should show it as disk 1

Have you got anything on it you wan't to keep?

If noit then highlight disk1 right click and format it.
