XP + 2 hard drives + Recovery = Headache

I have a 7935. I added a 2nd hard drive, set as a slave. If i do a full system recovery, it copies all of the recovery files to the SLAVE hard drive, and leaves the Master Hard Drive alone.

HP support says the solution is, unplug everything, open the computer, disconnect the hard drive, close the computer, plug everything back in, turn on the computer, run the system recovery, reboot when done, shut down, unplug everything, open the computer, plug back in the hard drive, close the computer, plug everything back in, and then power up!?!

If I buy a retail version of XP and install it on the 7935 where can i get the right drivers for this mother board?

Will a retail version of XP be able to do a restore, and only affect the MASTER hard drive?

Does anyone else think this is just a little stupid?
