this is an off-shoot thread of my problem currently residing in an old thread OEM hard drive installation.
I installed a new slave drive, bios recognized it, and the device manager sees it and states that it is functional.
But it is not showing up under the my computer window, and I never formated it. I have never installed a HD before so I really don't know what to do.
The drive seems to be up and running, but I can't use it apparently.
I am using a new computer running XP.
