You can't "daisy chain" two hard drives to read as one drive. Whatever hard drive you add, it will be a separate hard drive with it's own drive letter (or letters, depending on how many partitions you create on it).

It's not possible to "daisy chain" SATA HDDs & your board doesn't support RAID so unless you install a RAID controller card, all you can do is have a main HDD for the OS & additional HDDs for storage. Your board has 2 IDE & 2 SATA ports so you can have up to 6 HDDs if necessary.

✔ Best Answer
Do you have WinXP Professional or Home edition. If you have Professional, you can create a dynamic disk which will accomplish what you wish to do. See the links below.
