Win2k to XP upgrade & partition problems

By peter.berger@genexsrvcs ·
I have upgraded my Win2K PRO to WinXP Pro and the upgrade on the boot "C" (primary IDE0) drive went fine. XP works great, but it will not see my Win2K NTFS formatted "D" (secondary IDE0)drive. The only option I have in Disk Manager is "delete partition". Both drives were accessible in Win2k as NTFS, but now "D" is not. I am stumped. How do I make this "D" drive accessible in XP now w/o formatting the drive in XP and reinstalling all the data?
Any help would be great. Thanks. :)

Win2k to XP upgrade & partition problems

Did you use NTFS as the file system for the upgrade? Did you pick save or do not change as you upgraded? Can you boot to a NT floppy and see the second drive? Are you logged in as administrator when you try to see the other drive? You may not have rights to see the other drive, when you received your computer was there a login that you had to use?
