I actually just did this for the 1st time last night. It is very easy if you PC has a slot for a 2nd hard drive.
On your new hard drive you'll see a removeable plastic tab and you need to reference the manual (or sometimes the top of the hard drive) and set the tab to make this hard drive the slave drive. Second move the tab on your old drive the the master w/ slave setting.
That's it....XP will do the rest
I have recently purchased a new pc running win xp. My old pc was running me and had a lot of bundled software that was useful (Word perfect, for example) that is not on the new one.
Is it possible to add the old hd to the new machine and access it as a seperate drive? The software is all encode so it is not possible to identify individual programs and transfer them to the new hd.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
