I re-installed Win2K onto the 12 gig disc which was in my computer,and had the old flaky OS. I didn't know for certain how to reformat the drive so I just deleted everything associated with Windows. Probably there was a vestige of the old Windows in hidden files because I get 2 options in the boot sequence although, the first option is the only real one. The new installation works error free so is ok. I got the new disk, an Hitachi 200gig and have installed in the machine but the system doesn't see it. The diagram on the disk gives a setting of 2 jumpers for each option, master, slave and cable select. This is the first time I have seen this arrangement. Anyway as I said I cannot get the computer to recognise this new disk. Have you any idea what I may be doing wrong? I desperately need a second disk to backup my music. I have half of it on CD and about 12gig on DVD. I will eventually have the rest on DVD but it is going to take quite a while. I still have about 60gig to backup and am adding to it daily. Give me some idea please.
