Set up your old drive as primary master and all should be ok....TT

Hi, I think that when it is started up it will find new hardware for everything that is on your new m/board, so you will need the driver disc supplied with the new board. I would prefer to upgrade to a bigger Hard drive and use the old one as a slave. Cheers, Bill
