    I recently purchased a HDD (S-ATA 160gb) to replace my second HDD(60gb) for my laptop.

    however it doesnt like it.
    Im no expert with these things, so i hav questions.

    In the Bios - it states that HDD-1 and HDD-2 are both RAID-1. Is this a problem?
    It says i hav to reinstall OS if i change the HDD state. This message scares me. :(


    Also, Under STATUS - it says 'FAILED'. Is this because its not configed properly or a hardware fault?

    as for WindowsXP...it doesnt even detect that there is a second HDD in. So selecting it to format is out of the question.

    hope someone can help me - Thanks!.
