Put both drives on the same ribbon cable, both drives set to cable select <CS>. the bios will then detect them as primary and secondary.New drives are RAW and therefore not detected by any Operating system until formated. You can use seatools from seagates website to install and format the drive or use disk manager in windows.
Partitioning the drive in Windows XP / Windows 2000 (for systems where this is the 2nd drive in the system).

Windows XP installer will partition any hard drive with 10% open space. (system paration for recovery).
yes! it is acceptable. you will see 500GB but only have access to 475GB.

It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.
SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.

Testimonial: "thanks, ill look into that. how do you update the bios? (i have never had to do it before) do you burn the update to a cd/floppy and boot from it? Cheers again!"
SOURCE: i have a dell optiplex
maybe the hard drive is not yet recognized by the system. try to reformat your hard drive by using disc management. got to control panel, performance and maintenance, administrative tools, computer management. under storage, click disc management, right click on the new hard disc drive and click format.
