How do I assign a drive letter to a slave hard drive in Windows XP?
windows should automaticly recognize your slave drive and run it as the next available letter drive for example i have a 2tb hard drive partitioned to c, d, and e. i then have my DVD drive named f. with the remaining unallocated space (not formated to a recognizable state) i partitioned to g,h,i,j and my 500gb harddrive comes up as my k drive.
Yes you can. You can use is as a slave drive. There's nothing to worry if you have windows 98 installed on the HD.
How do you install Windows 98 on to a slave drive hard disk D in a 2 hard disk system that already has Windows XP. I want to install Windows 98 on to the slave drive D .?
if u have winxp on the master hd, just boot ur computer from a 98boot disk and install win98 on the slave. the computer should automatically configure itself for dual boot.
i never tryed that but you could backup everything u need from your slave to an other disk then reformat the hardrive witch would delete everything on it including windows.
Yes, you can delete windows 7 by formatting your drive, but all of your files will be gone. If you have two hard drives, you can either copy your data from one drive to the other or put xp/vista on the second one and use the windows 7 drive as a slave.
No. Windows 98 and later include the ability to use multiple displays by default.
On the older style ATA drives, now called PATA or simply IDE, each drive chain had two positions for drives. One was called the Master, and the other the Slave drive. The drives performed in exactly the same manner, and the only difference most people would notice was that the Master drive was given a drive letter before the slave drive. In short, a Slave drive does everything a Master drive does.
Can you take a master hard drive with windows installed on it and put it in another PC as the master?
Yes, but make sure first that you have the Windows' CD for 98 or XP or whatever on hand, so if/when it asks for it you can put it in ( it does not have to be OEM - a good burnt copy works.) If you can't, you will have to use it as a slave drive.
This question may be old but if you still don't know. Slave basically means like a second drive. One that doesn't need an os and is just put in your pc as secondary storage. Your primary or master hdd is the one you boot or post from and has windows installed. This is just the basics there is a little more to it.
What are some problems with the primary slave drive?
If you add an additional HD to your computer, the second drive becomes the slave drive because the computer must boot from the Master drive
Well an optical drive is a cd/dvd disk drive. Slave means it is in the secondary position on an IDE cable. So a slave optical drive is a cd/dvd drive positioned secondary to a different device on a singular IDE cable.
The second drive is mounted in any convenient spot above or below the first, and the flat ribbon cable going to the first drive usually has a second connector part way down the cable that can CAREFULLY plug into the second drive. It is sometimes labeled 'Slave', and only fits one way. Connect a spare power connector to the drive, and set the little jumper in the back of the drive to either CS (cable… Read More
You cant read the old files because ME and XP are two different operating systems. An operating system is the system a computer uses to read and receive information. With out and operating system you wouldn't even be able to turn on your computer. The best thing you can do is to see if you can convert your data. A computer service center might be able to help you. In the future I suggest you… Read More
No a second hard drive is only optional if you want more storage space then you can buy one and set it as the slave hard drive The Master hard drive is what has the OS on it if you have no clue what a OS is I will tell you. The OS is the Operating System the computer is running for ex. Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux and many others.
The second drive.....
When installing a hard drive and a CD-ROM drive on the same IDE channel which do you configure as the master and which as the slave?
Configure the hard drive as the master and the CD-ROM as the slave.
To allow for two drives on the same cable, IDE uses a special configuration called master and slave. This configuration allows one drive's controller to tell the other drive when it can transfer data to or from the computer. What happens is the slave drive makes a request to the master drive, which checks to see if it is currently communicating with the computer. If the master drive is idle, it tells the slave drive… Read More
We generally use the jumpers to set the disk drives as master or slave.
may be there is a virus in your system or may be some windows files are missing or there is any problem in selecting the master and slave remove the jumper of the external harddisk and then try
To remove a partition on a slave hard drive you can go into the BIOS. You should look up a guide if you plan to do this.
When installing a hard drive and a DVD writer on the same IDE channel which do you configure as the master and which as a slave?
Hard drive as master and DVD writer as slave.
In computing, you can have two disks, the main and the slave - these are set by jumpers on the hard drive. In classical hardware, the main would have priority over the slave. However, with better electronics's, most computers don't differentiate between slave and main anymore.
Some programs can just be copied from one drive to the other. However, most programs will not work this way. You will probably have to uninstall the program from your master drive and then install it on your slave drive using the program's installation disk.
If a CD drive and a hard drive are sharing the same data cable in a computer system what type of connection is the CD drive using Which of the two drives should be set to master which to slave?
IF the CD drive shares an IDE channel with a hard drive, make the hard drive the master and the CD drive the slave.
I just installed an old drive on a new computer and although the slave master sockets are in correctly Windows shows the drive in the Device manager but not Windows Explorer I can't reformat it?
im expecting that by drive u mean hard drive the hard drive may be in a diffrent file system, damaged, or be placed wrongly on the cord. if it is in a diffrent file system, u need a windows install disc. first place the jumper on master and put it where the main drive goes, put the CD in the CD drive and start the computer. u need to get to the boot settings if… Read More
When installing a hard drive and a CD rom drive in the same IDE channel which do you configure as the master and which as the slave?
It would be best to configure the CD drive as the Master and have the hard drive set to slave. This configuration normally allows the CD drive to function when hard drive is not bootable on a single channel IDE.
You can't. If your computer has multiple hard drives you need to designate one as a master and the other as a slave. The master (or main hard drive) stores and uses the preferrred operating system while the slave serves as primarily data storage. If you put even the same operating system on the hard drives the computer will either hang or crash because it will try to run "multiple instances" of the operating system… Read More

When installing a hard drive and a CD-ROM drive on the same IDE channel which do you configure as the master and which as a slave?
The Harddrive needs to be set as "master" and the CD ROM as Slave.
There are jumpers on the drive itself that can be configured to set it up as a master or a slave. Refer to your hard drive's documentation for the pins to use for these configurations.
Master and slave does not apply to scsi drives
Big chance that is on /dev/sdb if no then try /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd to mount em do in terminal: su (you password) mkdir /mnt/slave mount /dev/sdb /mnt/slave change as you like you drive will be accessible in /mnt/slave folder
Primary Master Primary Slave Secondary Master Secondary Slave Primary or Secondary will depend on which cable are you using to connect the drive. Master or Slave will depend on the drive's jumper configuration.

The secondary storage drive is called a slave drive.
You have two installed hard disks one is blank and one has xp on it you want to put xp on blank hard drive but do not know how?
You need to re-install Windows on the other. Or change the harddrives in the computer, so the Master will be a Slave and Vice versa.
The default annotation C: typically refers to the primary hard drive or primary partition of a hard drive from which the operating system is booted. The reason it is typically the C: letter drive is that, back in the day, a 3.5" disk drive was annotated as A: by default and the 5" or floppy drive was annotated as B: by default. The drive letter D: is usually utilized to indicate the default annotation of… Read More
5 If a CD drive and a hard drive are sharing the same data cable in a computer system what type of connection is the CD driving using Which of the two drives should be set to master Which to slave?
A parallel ATA interface cable. The hard drive it is set as a master and the CD drive as a slave.
This is quite normal. IDE stands for Intergrated Drive Electronics. It basically means that most of the drive controller electronics are on the disk drive itself. You can connect 2 drives to one cable. One will be set as the master drive and the other will be set as the slave. The master drive then controls itself and the slave drive. The setting for slave/master is normally done by small connectors joining a pair of… Read More
If you are installing a second hard drive into a computer will it still work if you can't change the jumper to slave?
That would depend on certain variables, such as whether you were putting it on the same cable as the other drive. In IDE, you must have a Master drive on each channel. The second drive must be set to Slave. You were not clear in which drive you could not change the jumper. Assuming the drive in the computer is alone on the cable, it is set to Master, so your new drive must be… Read More
Put both on the first IDE and set the HD with windows as master and the second one as slave. To do this you have to look on the back of the HD and set the jumpers (little clips) to the right setting. It usually says that on a sticker on the HD.
~Adding more detail and reorganizing~ The four choices for drive installations include the following: # Primary Master # Primary Slave # Secondary Master # Secondary Slave
If the registry entry is persistent, you have a hidden process running. The only way to get rid of this is to physically remove the hard drive from the computer and install it as a slave drive in another one (with an antivirus program, of course!). First scan the drive with the antivirus program. Then open Windows Explorer, then go to Tools -> Folder Options. In the Folder Options box, click the View tab. Select… Read More
Some IDE drives have a master/slave jumper, but a significant number of IDE drives defaulted to a "cable select" setting where the drive would determine for itself whether it was the master or the slave by which of the two sockets on the cable it was plugged into.
Each IDE slot can handle two drives. One drive will be the master and the other will be the slave depending o the configuration. If the jumpers of one drive is configured to set the drive as MA (Master), the second must be configured to SL (Slave). Both drives may be configured as CS (Cable Select), if so, The positioning on the ribbon cable will determine whic one is the master and which is the… Read More
