can i pull an xp drive
« on: August 31, 2007, 07:50:52 PM »
and put it in my new vista computer.

i have switched computers and rather than transferring things bit by bit, i thought that putting the hard drive from my old xp machine into my new vista machine would be easier.  i have never tried putting a drive in that has an older OS on it. will it work?  will it screw up vista?  can i take the xp  off first, or should i take it off after, or does it need to come off?  should i forget it and enjoy this clean computer????

If you put it in as a slave drive, it won't make any difference.
