New drives come with migration instructions and software to copy over the contents.
If you visit Maxtor.com or wdc.com you can read about these software and how to move it over. I will not duplicate that information here.
I have an HP8766c with a 40GB hard drive that informs me of a hard drive failure is iminent each time I start up. I know how to remove it, but what can I replace it with and what happens to the
original startup stuff and Windows ME when I turn the computer back on??
