I have had a second (slave) hard drive installed, but while trying to create a primary partition, it will not allow me to create anything bigger than 500Mb. I believe it may need the file system changing to FAT32, but on looking back in "my computer" the second hard drive has disappeared although it still remains in device manager. several sources have told me to enter the computers BIOS and select "IDE auto detection" but this option does not appear! can anyone suggest how I might find it to reinstall the drive? - thanks
