my pc went belly up two weeks ago, there was nothing but a black screen, a friend looked at it and said he thought it was the integrated graphics, he took out the HDD and tested it and it worked fine, in the meantime i bought a new pc with an 80HDD, dvdrom, dvdrw, 512ram, 2600amd prc, intregrated graphics, xp, my query is, can i get my two HDDs to work together?, i have all my files etc on my old drive, so could i remove everything off my new drive, and make it as one unit? is there a solution to my problem?, thanks, joel.
Do you need it to be one drive? You could put your old hdd in as a slave drive and simply access your files. or as above but copy your files accross and then remove the old (slave) hdd. If you use the old hdd as a slave (either permanent or temporary) you will have to set the jumpers on one or possibly both drives.
sorry for the delay in getting back,thanks for replies, its not important to make it one drive, i was wondering about having two windows xp on one machine, will it be possible to have them both installed together? joel.
i am about to have a go at putting my original Hdd into my new pc, i have taken the small clip out of the jumper connections to make it slave, i am concerned about having two xp systems on one machine, ideally i would like to use my old Hdd as master, but will my new pc allow me to do that, i thought i could format my new Hdd and wipe it clean and maybe do a raid config, i am a bit wary as to what will happen once i install both drives, any advice would be very welcome, joel.
