Easiest way to do this go into windows control panel
Administrator tools

Erase all memory

There may be a restore partition on the harddrive (you'll have to determine if there is), if so you can use the data on that partition to restore the PC to it's original configuration. Otherwise an Operating System disk would be the best way to format the harddrive and do a clean install.

Connection of two harddisk

One ide channel can have two devices, most pcs have two ide channels primary and secondary.

if You have 2 ide channels then you can install total of 4 ide drives into your pc.

if you have only one ide channel / connector on your motherboard then you can install only 2 ide drives into your pc.

your pc might also have sata slots for devices.
1 drive / connector.

Installing a drive is very simple.
open the pc case.

Locate a free ide cable, connect your harddrive to it and also attach the power cable. Thats it.

Harddrive not detecting

hi there

the space is still there its just has not been partictioned. Goto diskmanager and you will see the other 60 gig that has not been partictioned, use windows to create a logical drive then format it then you will see the other 60 gig.

good luck
