The drive makers have install instructions as well as clone software.
I'd like to replace my current internal Hard Drive with a larger drive.
I've not done this for many many years and then it was to add a slave. I'm not wanting to go the slave route this time. I did some browsing at Newegg.com and see that they offer both 'new' and 'oem' drives. The oem drives seem to be less expensive. From what I understand from reading various customer reviews is that 'new' drives offer rails, cables, and possibly better instructions or instructions period. Where as the rails, cables, and instructions are all included with 'new' drives.
I shouldn't need the rails and cables since this will be going in the primary drive spot. If instructions are missing, is it really hard to install a hard drive?
Oh...another question. I've read some reference to Windows XP having a maximum size hard drive it can handle like around 130 or 140 Gigabytes. If a person purchases a hard drive that is about 250 Gigabytes can Windows XP partition that size drive and then be able to use the full 250 GB or is it case where everything over 130 or 140 GB will just be lost?
Have a Great Day,
