The OS installed on that machine is not going to run but if you just want to connect it to the second (slave) connection of the 80 conductor IDE cable in the other machines, most drives will just work fine since the CABLE SELECT jumper should be set and it's just a mechanical exercise to move the drive over.
-> But HP was replacing bad capacitor boards even out of warranty for free. Did you ask?
My mother board has bad capacitors and I cannot view contents of my presario, I want to save contents of the drive.
my other pc's are a deskpro and a new gateway?
suggestions, how to go about ?
