Hi All,

My hard drive has just gone bang, is it just a case of taking the old one out and replacing with another one, will the computer prompt me to load XP on it, my old drive was ME so it was well dated, I now fancy putting XP on the new one,

Thanks for that, I think it's an IDE as I have seen that on the start up screen many times is there any way to check exactly?

Sata has a narrow red (mine is) lead, but IDE is the wide grey ribbon type.

Many thanks for that,
