    We have computer with two disk drives C & D. Windows xp home is the OS on
    drive C.
    We use the drive D as storage. My brother wished to install the same windows
    on D (D its capacity is 80 Giga)
    So I formated the D for him to be ready for installation of the OS (xp
    home).Now the drive D is formated so it does not contain any DOS files.Some
    persons in newsgroup advised to do copy of OS on C and do paste in D. I did
    but when I boot the computer the only OS in C works while D works as a
    storage for copied window files.
    Please any person can help.
    Thank you all.

    You have to install the OS to the D: drive thus giving you a dual boot
    machine, copying the files will not work.
