Question about Dell OPTIPLEX GX110/200 PIII-866MHz 256MB 20GB (PCPIII866DELL) PC Desktop
Yesterday, i'd format the PC, it used the dell motherboard. i took or move out the hard drive from the place to the other PC that used the other motherboard from the diffrent supplier(not dell). i've install the Windows XP OS. when i move back or put back to the PC. the motherboard not detect the hard drive, is that the problem come from the motherboard?
You may have a hardware issue or cheak the jumpers on the hard drive some computers use a slave drive and set the jumpers as such.Is not you will have to reinstall xp HOpe i helped:)And yes you can move a hard drive from 1 to another as long as it is the same op system.All that will happen is it will auto install all new hardware.

You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on
