The system specs state maximum HD size is 240GB. I have two 160GB hard
drives. Only one of them is seeen in Windows server 2003. The bios
sees both - one as primary master the other as Primary Slave.
Any leads on how to anable both?

Has the second drive been partitioned and formatted?

Are looking in disk administrator or Windows explorer?
