depending on what drive it is. Let's say it's a western digital, They all have software on there websites to copy a drive to a new drive. in westerd digitals case it would be www.wd.com and in the support downloads section you would find the software.
You would have to hook up both drives and tell it which you drive you want to copy from (old drive) and to (new drive)
that is correct.. IF you are using windows 2000 the files are NOT the same as the files under XP.. Your best bet is to EITHER install the complete XP or find the win2k installation disk,, even an upgrasde disk for win 200 can be found probably around 100.00. IF the system isn't booting from your XP disk IS Your disk an ORIGINAL or a copy of the original?.. If for example your CD rom is drive E then see if you can find a win XP emergency boot disk and access the CDROM goto e:\windows\i386 then run the setup program, many cases this will overwrite your existing OS.. but do so at your OWN RISK I will not be accountable if you lose any of your important files.. some win98 emergency boot disks can access the cdrom but you may have to make certain additions to the autoexec.bat and/or config.sys files. be careful when using DOS because you can completely delete EVERYTHING on the HDD if you use the right command(s). As A DOS BABY I have performed many lazarus miracles but I have been using dos since the early 70's
hi, i have dell c400 laptop, its to much simple to install xp first you just take out hdd from laptop plug in tht hdd in desktop pc by external usb box now u just start windows 98 setup in it when it started first format ur drive then install it when windows 98 setup files copies to 100%. machine need to restart u just plug out the hdd and plug in back to laptop now the setup will remain start in ur laptop and when the installation complete u just upgrade ur windows from 98 to xp by intalling xp from external drive on OPERATING SYSTEM OF 98 WINDOWS NOW WAT U SAY??? ITS TO MUCH SIMPLE just try once
try to go to bios and load bios defaults, esc then save and exit. boot from the cdrom by, tapping on F12 at dell screen. at boot menu screen, choose cdrom, press enter, when you see the message, PRESS ANY KEY T5O BOOT TO CDROM, hit any immediately, that should allow you to install xp directly from the cdrom.
You mean the setup doesn't load? Also when installing Windows, the first part it copies data to the just formatted harddrive. Then it reboots, but make sure it doesn't reboot from CD because then it wil start all over again. It must boot from harddrive after it copied files to your drive.
The setup data is located on you HDD from that moment on.
