To know the details of your Windows XP OS, click the Start button> right-click My Computer> select Properties. You will now see the details including 32 or 64 bit, Home or Professional etc. related to your Windows XP OS. If you want, you can note them down.
As far as the slave drive is concerned, I guess this is the secondary drive on to which you saved your Windows XP installation (if you have 2 hard drives installed on your computer). usually the main drive is recognized by the default letter C: and the secondary (slave) drive is recognized by whatever letter you chose it to be. So go to My Computer and check which drives you have there. Open each drive to make sure you see its contents to either copy or do whatever you want to
I have an old drive set up as a slave drive in my computer that currently has Windows XP installed. I have been scouring the web for the last few hours and cannot find anything about how to identify the OS installed on the slave drive. I was wondering if it would be possible to find information on the OS installed? I already have the serial for the drive, I now need to know 32/64 bit, and if it is the Home or Professional version of XP. I am going to do a reinstall and need to know which disk to use. Thanks in advance!
