installing a secondary hard drive

By anansimann ·
I am running winXP home edition, and I am trying to install a secondary hard drive. I can see the new hard disk in the control panel, but I can format it, because I can't see it, when I open windows explorer. How do i fdisk it so that I can see it in windows explorer? Does winXP have fdisk in it?

Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management. There is a utility called disk management which will allow you to create a new partition on the disk and format it. You should be able to assign a drive letter to it and then see it in windows explorer.

Hope this helps
