you know

i`m glad i`m not the only one

and i think i found one of my problems

when my son started this mess i`m in

i think he made the maxtor a bootable hdd

now all i have to do is remember how to clean it off and start over

as faw as i know you can have two hd`s bootable

but i might be wrong

i`m still stumped, bios are set for auto detect

and have both hhd as cable select

and no go for seeing the other hhd

guess i need to just plug in the one and try to

get it cleaned off and start from fresh install

but all of this will have to wait till i`m back home

any ideas would help me greatly
