The computer was for a customer. They wanted windows 98, a fresh install of XP while keeping their old XP install. A new Hard drive was purchased for the new OS's along with a Sata controller as their computer did not have Sata. The Sata controller and 250GB HD was cheaper than the 250 ATA HD with shipping. So since it was on a different controller I did not know how it would work. They needed it back so we just settled for being able to access old files without the actual OS being bootable. However if anyone can think of a sure way to find this out still post back as I will be back to set up their email account to work with Outlook.
