There is something that I may have overlooked.

Is this a Dell or Gateway system?

When you spoke about the systen recovery disk in your first post, did you mean a full version Windows XP installation disk, or a recovery disk from say Gateway or Dell? This would explain a few things. Recovery disks replace everything on the target hard drive. If it does not find enough space, or encounters partitions that it does not understand, such as a Linux partition....

What's missing from your posts, is a description or your system/hardware.

If this is not the case, some other points apply.

When you start switching out drives, you need to make sure that the drives are jumpered correctly. Some drives have a "single" jumper setting that means that you have one drive in the system only.

In order to have two or more drives in the system, you must change that designation. If your master drive is such a drive, you need to change the jumper settings to designate master, slave for the two drives.

One way to see this clearly, is to look in the bios and see if both drives are recognized.

Perhaps you can clarify these points, which will help a lot.

If this is not a Dell or Gateway system, we need to know what manufacturer's utility to use, so, we need to know what make hard drive that you are targeting. Windows XP wants to be the first OS on the system. So, no matter what way you cut it, XP needs to be the the first OS on your master drive to make this process as easy as possible.

I love it when a plan comes together
