PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win98se & Win xp pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



I recently (2 months ago) replaced the motherboard. I previously had 2 hard drives working on the system without problems. When I replaced the m/b I installed XP pro onto one of the partitions on my main drive. I now have the problem that win 98 sees my 2nd drive as drive I, win xp sees it as drive d. Neither os lets me format or access it. If I try and fdisk it also fails.
I am at my wits end and any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
I have purchased another h/drive but am loath to try and fit it in case the same problems arise.

Thanks for your response. First error when using a 3rd party system is: Read sector error ( 0 cylinders, 0 heads, 1 sector ) update terminated.
Second error when trying to format thru windows is: Error writing to fixed disk.

Surface scan reveals: no bad sectors.
