I want to fit a second harddrive into my P/C and use it as the master, can any one give any advice or steer me towards a site that can give me the imformation I need. It's just that I don't fancy making a cockup and losing all the data from the original harddrive.

Use norton ghost, install it, make a boot disk, shut down the computer, disconnect the cd/cdrw drive, reconnect the cables to the new hard drive, insert the ghost boot disk and start the computer.

Copy drive to drive.

Install the new drive as master in place of the old hard drive, set the old drive to slave reconnect cd/cdrw and restart.

And not forgetting to format the old drive after windows has loaded.

PUT THE 2ND DRIVE ON A DIFFERENT CABLE, THE HDD'S WILL THEN READ QUICKER
