Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I have an existing desktop computer which has a C:\drive, only 40GB. Added FlightSIm X and nearly filled up the C drive. No space left for detailed scenery sftwr of local area. Purchased a 2nd hand Seagate 80GB drive, which had a lot of old company sftwr on it - formatted it and now it accepts files, pgms etc. Using DIsk Manager in CTL Panel, I changed the its drive to E from F. That worked just fine. Now however, when I attempt to install anything,it always defaults to drive C. Is it because my "new" drive E does not have a operating system, like XP PRO? My computer experience is limited although active on them for 20 years, but at 77 by no means an expert. Please help, if you can. Tks
Yes, default is C. You just need to direct the installs to F. Keep one drive as the OS and the other for file storage.

SOURCE: Windows running very slow
Click "Start" then "run" then type in msconfig and click "startup".
Uncheck the programs you don't need running at startup and then click "apply" and click restart.
If you feel comfortable...go into the basic input-output system by holding the delete key during intial boot. When the menu appears go to boot menu and choose your hard drive as first item in boot sequence.
Once the computer starts up go to here .

It's very easy. You can switch SATA mode from AHCI to IDE (in Bios) and install XP, or leave AHCI mode, with 'nLite' integrate AHCI drivers into XP installatin files, burn and install... Drivers are not problem, just search in google, even ePower tools are working.

SOURCE: Windows Xp activation
Dont ever think of bypassing windows activation using any alien softwares. If you have the valid license key. You can call microsoft toll free no of your region and ask them to activate your product.
1. To know the toll free no of your region Click activate windows on your troubled machine.
2. Select the item saying something like activate windows using telephone.
3. Select your region from the drop down menu.
There you go you have the both toll free and toll no's of your region.
4. Enter the never ending installation Id from your phone. If every thing goes fine the pre-recorded voice will give you the confirmatiopn Id(which never happend to me) otherwise it will be transfered to a representative.
5. He/she will ask you the Product key(license Key) and in the end will give you a new confirmation id, and enter it in the space provided.
Hurrah!!! Your windows is now activated.
Without using any software or tricks.

Yes, you can put it on your current computer as a second hard drive.
What I would do is visit Western Digital's website and download their disk tools.
Once you do this, you can clone the old hard drive (the 20 GB) to your newer one (the 80 GB). Then you can make the larger hard drive the master and use the old smaller drive for a backup.
In fact, if I'm not mistaken, there are directions on the WD site to tell you exactly how to do that.
