    I have an 8KNXP with the first HDD on SATA0 and the second on IDE0. I
    was running Alcohol 120% fine in win2k, however, having upgraded (!)
    to XP SP2 my second HDD vanished from Windows.

    After fiddling a bit with various settings I uninstalled Alcohol 120%
    (an obvious suspect given how it mucks about with the drive letters)
    and lo and behold, my second HDD is back.

    I don't know if anyone else has seen this or knows of a workaround?

    It is long known that Alcohol 120 and other apps that use the same driver
    have such problems.
    It was often stated on the XP beta news groups that one should de-install
    these apps prior to attempting an SP2 install.

    The only suggestion I can make is to hunt down an update for the affected
