if you cannot access the drive at all with fdisk you may need to repair the mbr on the hard drive if this is the problem write back

How to: Dual Boot system with XP & Vista on separate hard drives


If XP where your primary OS this would not be a problem. Since Vista is the Primary you are going to need to get a boot loader that will start before either OS does and use that to choose OS at bootup.

Coppying speed is slow


in vista you need to change the remote differential compression.  Can be found in control panel?programs?windows settings I believe.  Turn it off.  As far as XP, sounds like a problem with the hard drive or memory.  I know of this issue in vista, but never ran into it with XP.

Query regarding maximum capacity of motherboard support for a hard disk


your cpu does not have much to do with the hdd you may be getting...
technically you should have no problem by getting the largest hdd you can afford. what you may want to take into consideration besides your budget is:
what os you're using.. dos, win9x, xp, vista?
a. if you have dos the smaller you can get probably the better as you may not be able to create a large partition. (chances are you may not get anything new smaller than 40 gigs.. and that would be a big waste of money and hard drive room)
b. if you have win9x, your probably using fat32 for your filesystem meaning you may not be able to go above 32 gig when creating your partition and formating your drive.
c. if your using win xp or vista... and your planning on using NTFS when partitioning the drive instead of FAT32...(as you should unless your operating system is on a FAT32 partition) you can go for the largest hdd you can afford.

I'm new to building pcs and this is my first build. I have two Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250G hdd's installed in my newly built pc. I have yet to detect a driver when trying to install ...


There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand


You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.

HARD DISK CAPACITY PROBLEM


When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.
