December 27, 2007 pat mc Great job thanks always wondered why it did that on Windows XP my old Windows does not have a problem but XP does.

For some people, such sketches help to put everything back when you are done.If you are replacing your old hard drive, remove the cables from the old drive. help yourself before you can be helped!!! XP Index >>> A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | What kind of Drive is it?
On my Desktop I have an internal HD that runs the following: 95, 98se, ME, 2000, and XP. I should have figured it out myself. You know they loaded the pavillion 9905 with a secret partition so it will recover it self. This is the fix.
I also saw installing with drivers in a floppy disk, the option of F6. I had done everything i could think of. This didn't work for me, but I found another possible solution. Rufus I'm so happy I found your website.
Keep on operating with you rhead in the sand-I'll see you in a few years when I still have job opportunites because I'm wiling to support ANY type of OS. Read the partition posts, and figure I would need to "ghost" the OS, or would a clean install be better and ghost the rest of the programs? They are, of course, formatted NTFS. http://www.theeldergeek.com/hard_drives_03.htm It never dawned on me to go to disk management.

The only difference for this is when you mount the drive, you have to select a totally different letter than what it shows it as in Disk Management. September 12, 2007 Norman Good fix - and do not change the title, it came top of my google! In Disk Management both of the drives appear, both in the upper and lower parts of the window.

This drive will be the main drive, but not until I load the image from the old drive. January 2, 2009 anon Thanks, it worked for me! However it is not appearing in ‘My Computer', even though I'm using Windows ME? The drive is a SCSI.
I'm bery much obliged getting yr help from http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/find-your-missing-usb-drive-on-windows-xp/. If the hard drive is still OK then it should show up fine.If the hard drive is ‘bad' then it will take some nicer tech guy to perform TRUE data recovery Frankly, Windows is no longer worth the pain of its retarded USB manglement. Keep up the good work Reply Richard on August 10, 2007 at 9:10 am My 2nd EIDE (XP) drive installed with surprising ease -- no BIOS or jumper changes (cable select).
Any idea on what i might be doing wrong?Tom Reply Scott on January 27, 2009 at 2:01 pm Great, thank you!
