Hi,
I am not sure from what you have said but it sounds like a permission problem, go to this site and read about taking ownership of XP files and see if that is your problem.

you dont have an OS on your slave drive.
if your dealing with permision rights.
format it.

Huggie54,

Have you checked the permission settings on these folders?

Also, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/w7itpro/ . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and guidance.
