Thanks for the fast response. I had worked through several of those suggestions already, but I learned something along the way.
The hard drives show up in the BIOS, but do not under the Windows Recovery Console. So I tried a disconnecting the drives, and starting Windows XP setup. Neither drive could be seen by the Windows Pro Setup, as the only thing in the list is 'Unknown Disk'. Hitting enter yielded an error caused by the following file: setupdd.sys (page fault in nonpaged area)
So I'm wondering what would make this happen? Have 2 hard drives gone bad in less than a year? Could this be caused by something else, such as malware? Should I just get another machine and start doing file recovery?
