Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
I am presently using a Dell Dimension 4300. I want to exchange my hard drive with my newer Dell Dimension 4700 (it's faster, has more ram, and all my programs, and data, are running the way I like them). Both PC's are using XP Home Edition. I keep hearing that you can, and you can't, something to do with the hardware's config. If there are differences detected when my old disc boots on the Dim 4700, shouldn't the OS detect, and adjust itself? Could trying the exchange corrupt my hard drive?
You can change the hard drive, but it will create major driver issues.
You will have to let the computer tell you which drivers are missing and go back and download them from the manufacturers website or use the software that you have.
You cannot damage the hdd doing this.
The easy way to do this would be to install this as a secondary hdd, this would allow for more storage and less problems.
