That seems to be good. Are your jumpers set correctly?
What is your BIOS boot order? master should be first
if all that is correct, then what error is XP giving you on boot?
Boot sequence is set to, CD - hdd - floppy - others
The jumper is set correctly, the slave hdd is Maxtor where no jumper set = slave & Hitachi is set to master accordingly.
After reinsert the socket and try, it's booting & window recognize the slave disk. May be the socket is not properly insert.
