Question about Computers & Internet
I have a computer that i purchased in 2000 of course the hardrive has me downloaded. i have another computer that has xp on the hardrive. i would like to use the xp 200gb hardrive in the old computer and if possible use both hardrivers. can you please help me?
Firstly there could be 1 major factor in what u want to do and that is are both processors the same e.g:- amd and amd.because if you try to install a hdd with windows on iboth chips must be same brand as all you will get as windows trys to load is the blue screen of death dont panic if you get this all you have to is
reintsall windows or perform a repair that way there is no file loss.

On the back of the hard drive where the power plug goes into there are little jumper pins next to it that come out , put that pin in the slot that says slave , directions for this are ontop of the hard drive, then put the hard drive in the computer that has xp on it, depending how the inside is configired , use the cable that is in the xp hard drive , that cable should have another plug half way down the cable, plug that into ur windows 2000 hard drive then start computer , when xp loads up check my computer for the extra hard drive, if you cant work out what slot the jumper pins goes into , just keep trying different slots , until it is reconised in my computer , it will also show if it is connected at the start up just after you power on your computer , this you can do to add the windows 2000 hard drive to the xp computer, or the xp hard drive to the 2000 computer
