My grandsons puter has a 2.5 gig hard drive running Windows ME... I fitted a 6.5 gig drive as the slave HDD...When I try to install XP it tells me there is not enuff disc space on drive "c" (the original drive")... which I suspected might happen as XP gobbles up space... he has a lot of stuff on his drive which he doesnt want to lose ( you guessed it .. boom boom music )... he doesnt have a re-writer.. how can i free up space on drive "c"... if its not possible.. can I get XP to install on to the new drive and how do i do it? (so many questions ..so little brains)
you install xp on the slave drive. how u go about doing that is upto u, either remove drive and select as master, then proceed to install....or use it as a dual boot system, set it to boot from 2nd hdd.
Ok .. I have now got ME on the 2.5 drive (slave) amd XP on the 6.5 drive (master).... I get a choice on boot up .. Can I remove ME from the first drive without losing any data i.e work solely on XP .. is there a way this can be done??
