Those are partitions, you don't have two hard drives. And it's better this way. For example, if Windows crashes, you won't lose the entire contents of your laptop. If you put your music/movies/pictures to the other partition they will be safe.

Dual boot xp with windows 8


No solution now, Install Windows XP again on first partition, Make sure BOOT.INI, NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM in the same partition in which Windows XP is loaded. Then install WIndows 8.
OR in the current scenario you've to do much technical work using third-party tools.

Screen turns on while booting, after a minute or 2, goes blank.


Sounds like windows is hanging up or the hard drive is bad. Try to reinstall windows. If you have files you want to save;
(1) you can install windows on a new hard drive
(2) install windows on a different part of the hard drive. (You'll be asked by windows where you wanna install)
(3) remove the hard drive and copy files to your/a friends PC.
If the windows disk is in the CD/DVD drive and still get a black screen then your hard drive is bad.

How do i install a used hard drive into an eMachines T2341? The hard drive still has information on it. do i set it as master, slave, or cable select? hard drive is an IBM 10.1 gb


There are two possible solutions depending on how your desktop is setup.
#1 install the 2nd hard drive and put jumper to CABLE SELECT. When you start the computer it should now appear in the bios as a SLAVE or 2nd hard drive. If not go to #2 below
#2 Turn system off again and change jumper on 2nd hard drive to SLAVE.
Now when your computer restarts it will appear in your bios correctly as the 2nd drive/SLAVE.
Do not make it "MASTER" or you will be trying to boot up to this drive and it may not work as you planned.

FYI: "Cable Select" means the hard drive determines which one is Master and which one is Slave by where it is on the data cable.

Good Luck

Replaced harddrive and dvdroom wont recognize in bios


Goto bios menu. And change the setting on hard drive and cdrom. It could be it still set in the old configuration. Try to set it in auto detect. Then save the setting. Then goto bios once again to check if the settings doesn't change. Restart again and wait if something you didn't expect still happens.

Leave a comment if this solve cd rom detection.
