My uncles machine stopped booting, it kept resetting the system and I couldn't get it out of this somewhat permanent funk so I decided to make it a slave on my PC and back up his stuff onto DVD. My uncles hard drive is a MAxtor 20gB running XP on a NTFS partition.
Now I'm running XP on an NTFS partition that boots off a Western Digital 40GB and I configured the maxtor as slave according to their website.
Now here's where it goes a bit pear shaped... The Maxtor slave is recognised by DOS on my system but it's not visible when Windows has loaded up. I tried accessing Administrative Tools in the control panel and accessed Disk Management but the Maxtor simply isn't there!!
I'm running both drives on a RAID array whereas the maxtor was not on a RAID when in my uncles system.
CAN ANYONE HELP?!!!!
I don't know where I'm going wrong. I can see the maxtor in DOS and when the RAID check loads up on system startup but Windows doesn't see it. Even though it's in the control panel, windows just doesn't see it.
Am I doing something wrong?!! Please help if you can
