Hard Drive not recognized

  1. My WinXP Pro crashed today, and I had to reset the PC. After reset, the screen stopped at the "Finding IDE devices page" for a long time. After a long time, it found my primary HD and my CD-ROM, but didn't find my secondary HD. The whole initial loading process is taking forever. I can't even get pass DOS mode. Is my HD broken? If it is not recognized, I can't even format it then. Please help. Thanks.

    Oh, After I removed the HD, the system runs smoothly like before.
