  1. just replaced my motherboard with the ecs6100sm-m.want 2 install 2 drives with 2 operating systems.
    i have xp installed on one of them and that works fine.
    However i can see the second drive anywhere(bios,my computer, or boot-up sequence).i've tried enabling raid from bios(primary and secondary) but all it does is trying to install xp again, but it's already installed.
    The manual is no help at all.

    To make things a bit clearer... You have two hard drives. Are they both SATA or is one IDE? Are you trying to install XP on both drives? If so, why?
