When i now connect the 120 to the second IDE Bus where normally the CD Drive is attached, does it work correctly?????


yes. there is no reason why it shouldn't :)

I have the OS on a 2.1 GB HD i found at cleaning up my room.
Now when i boot it only shows this one.

But in Windows is see the 2.1 and the 80 (the 120 is not installed for now)


thanks for posting this. i almost thought that nobody would believe that it actually works since i recommended that a million times before. but nobody seems to really believe that it _would_ work. i'm using you as a reference now :)

now. if you'd limit the capacity of the 80GB drive to 32GB with the jumper you should be able to detect it in the bios, install an operating system and boot it. just make sure you select LBA or AUTO in the bios otherwise it is possible that the bios states 'operating system not found' when it should load the OS instead.
