Don't know your setup. 1 partition per drive? Not sure but I think modify the boot.ini file. Then on boot will have choice of operating system. Xp Pro is disk 0 partition 1, Xp media disk 1 partition 1 A typical boot.ini file looks like this: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional Corporate" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect Just modify this by adding in another entry under the Operating Systems heading, as so: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional Corporate" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows xp pro media center 2005" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect If there
Mount the drives in the carrier connect the 40-pin cable to the drives set the drive at the end of the cable to master set the drive in the middle of the cable to slave install the drives in the computer and configure the drives
Only one master is connected to single IDE cable
Yes you can transfer files between 2 hard drives. Make one hard drive a slave and another the master.
When connecting to IDE drives (whether they be hard disk drives or optical drives) on the same cable, the computer needs to be able to tell them apart. When using a 40 wire IDE cable, you have to identify one drive as Master and the other as Slave. You do this by positioning the jumpers on the end of the drive according to the diagram on the drive itself. When using an 80 wire cable, set the jumpers on both drives to the 'cable select' position and their Master and Slave classifications will be determined by their position on the cable.
The hypothalamus is the master control center of the endocrine system.
Typically this is done with jumper pins.
Master and slave does not apply to scsi drives
That would a chauffeur. But I'm sure he doesn't call the person he drives around Master.
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 slave

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.
Only two drives can be supported on an IDE cable. One Master and one Slave.
if it is DVD or CDROM both,otherewise only one
We generally use the jumpers to set the disk drives as master or slave.
on any drives in a computer you have a slave and master
No, there's no Master Ball available at Pokemon Centers.
There is no requirement that one or the other is the Master or Slave, as long as one of them is (if they are on the same cable.)
a PATA drive has master and slave settings
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.
It's possible to have two mass storage devices on a single IDE cable. The first device will have it's jumpers set to "Master" and the second device will be set to "Slave". That is only a way FOR THE HARDWARE to differentiate between the two drives.
Two ways, setting the jumper on the drive to set as master or slave. Or if you use cable select, the drive at the end of the cable should be the master.
The school master trains the mind. The Station master minds the train.
There are jumpers on the drives that differentiate the master from the slave. If the jumpers aren't set correctly, the BIOS will not recognize them. In addition, some IDE ribbon cables are also labled Drive 0 (or Master) and Drive 1 (or Slave). If the jumpers are set correct, but the drives are plugged into the ribbon cable incorrectly, the computer will not recognize the drives.
Jumpers are used with the IDE (aka P-ATA) drives (hard disks or other drives like DVD recorder) . There can be two drives on the same cable with this norm, a master and a slave. The controller of the disk need to know if it is supposed to be the master or the slave. Jumpers are set to this purpose. There is a special mode called "cable select" where the position on the cable determines the mode (disk at the end of the cable is master, disk in the middle of the cable is slave)
