Hi. Is it true that we cannot set 2 harddisks on a same machine to Master? When I bought another harddisk, the computer dealer told me not to set both my harddisks to Master as it will corrupt my windows. When I was fixing the harddisk, I accidentaly set it to master and now my windows is corrupted. I'm now running on a fresh copy of windows. So is it true that by setting 2 disks to master, windows will get corrupted?

No. If you set two drives to master, your computer will simply not boot. It probably won't detect either of the drives, or it'll only detect one of them. It should not corrupt your windows, that doesn't make any sense.

I agree with the above message.
As such, we can actually have 2 Master drives in a machine, provided that there are 2 IDE connectors on the motherboard, as also 2 separate cables where each hdd are connected separately

I will agree that the situation is bizarre but I do not think it couldn't happen. I've seen Windows do some strange stuff.
