Using laptop as hard drive alternative

  Sempy 01:27 28 Oct 2018

Hi. So my gaming PC's harddrive broke down because of all the constant power outages that has been happening around the house. It's been several months and my expensive GPU's collecting dust at this point and I am so desperate to be back at it.

I don't have any sort of money up until next month but I do have a laptop and I was wondering if I could use it as a hard drive alternative so I could boot my pc back up again. Any sort of suggestion would be helpful.

Only by removing the laptop hard drive and fitting it to the PC. I would definitely avoid this as the laptop windows installation is totally different from the PC with incorrect and missing drivers.
