Question about ASUS A8N-VM Motherboard
I have a A8N-VM Motherboard running on AMD Athlon 3200+ Processor. I have my old 250GB IDE HDD and came to know from here (fixya.com) that I can replace my old IDE HDD with a 500GB SATA II.
My question is whether I can connect both the IDE and SATA II HDDs to transfer my important data from my old IDE HDD to SATA II HDD?
Yes you can. You may have to go in BIOS or and select your SATA as the first drive to boot off of though, else it might try to boot off the old IDE. But once you're in windows, it will appear as another drive in my computer.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
