install the old HDD in the new PC as a secondary HDD or
install the old HDD into an external USB housing and transfer the data to the new systen via USB.
If possible....check to make sure the old HDD powers on and spins up...if not, no point installing anywhere.
The motherboard on my eMachine T2682 crashed so the computer will not start. How can I transfer the data from the hard drive of the dead desktop to the new desktop. I am thinking of buying the HP Pavilion a1600n desktop. Thanks.
