Question about HP Compaq Evo D510 e-PC PC Desktop
I purchased a WD 500 GB WD5000AAKB hard drive for my EVO D510. I installed it as a secondary with the Cable Select Jumper settings. When booting up, I checked the setup and the system recognized the hard drive in the setup. I saved the settings and booted up to XP. I could only see the C drive and not the new drive. I went to the Add Hardware menu and saw the device and it said the "device is working properly". I tried changing the jumper settings to master/slave but the system wouldn't even recognize the drive at that pont. I changed it back to Cable Select and the system recognized the drive but I couldn't see it in My Computer.
Any ideas on what to do?
You need to initialize the newly added drive in disk management, then format the drive once disk management assigns a drive letter.
CONTROL PANEL, ADMIINSTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, DISK MANAGEMENT
There you should be able to see the 2nd drive, Right click and INITALISE it, once it is initialized, it will be assigned a drive letter and you can format the drive
