Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Right now windows is setup with C:\ as my 160gb sata drive, I want to use the sata for games only and make my 2nd IDE hd my boot/data drive... I have data on the IDE that I wish to keep copied from my sata, but my sata can be wiped clean with no issues. What is the proper way to do this so that my sata shows as F:\ and my IDE as C:\ ? both are set as masters one in the sata channel and the other ide channel. Thank you for your time.
- sata has no master
- i presume u want the OS on the ide drive, and not just that the ide drive to have "C" assigned to it! So : 1 - U can copy the data form the ide to the sata, and then reinstall the OS on the ide (note: the OS will start up a bit slower do to the slower ide drive !!!) and so it will become the C drive ! And u can assign to the sata what ever letter u wish...
2- if u don't want to reinstall the os u can do a copy of the os and put it on the ide drive(not just copy the files !! it will not work!!!). U cold use clonezilla for example... But probably the first method wold be safer ....
