Extremely long boot time after adding additional hard disk

    I wanted some additional disk space and so, I recently plugged in a
    used but formatted hard disk to my win 98 machine. My PC recognizes
    it, and I can use it too..real good plug and play that way, I did not
    even install any drivers etc. But now the boot time has gone from
    about 30 sec to 4 minutes.

    Can anybody help me figure out what is happening?

    Hi Ananth, No drivers are required for hard drive. Did you set up the
    drive in the BIOS (Setup) If not do so and the boot should go back to
    previous time. Jim
