HD swapped in, won't detect all partitions
Okay, I have an interesting little problem. I've got an old Presario with a 20G hard drive running XP. I want more space, but as I'm a relatively broke college student, I can't even afford the cheapest of new hard drives - so I scavanged an even older Packard Bell I had laying around with an 8G hard drive, divided into four equal-sized partitions. I took it out and put it in the Presario. When I boot up, the BIOS says it detects a 20G drive and an 8G drive. Good. But then once I get into Windows Explorer, it says I've got my 20G drive, and a 2G drive. It's only detecting the first of the four partitions on the second hard drive. What's up?
Dunno if it'll help, but here's some basic info (I'll list pretty much everything, since I don't know what might be useful to know):
Compaq Presario 5000, circa 1999-2000
750MHz AMD Duron
20G hard drive, FAT32 (plus the 8G, of course, though I'm not sure if it's FAT16 or FAT32)
8Mb nVidia TNT2 video card
16x DVD-ROM drive
8x CD-RW drive
The other one was:
Packard Bell Legend 20CD, circa 1994-1995
486, 133MHz (upgraded from 486DX2 66MHz chip)
8G hard drive (well, it used to) running Windows 95 SP2
1MB generic video card
I think I switched the jumpers to "slave" setting properly - if I hadn't, I don't think it would detect it at all, but I could well be wrong.
