Hi, Ive got a problem. I just had a new mother board installed, and as it was different from my former board, I was told that I needed to install windows agian. I opted to install another hard drive. hard drive 1 is the master (with new windows installed), and hard drive 2 is the slave (with all my docu and programs). the "helpful" guy at the computer store said I could copy and paste the programs and they would work, but this is not the case. Also, the new windows is full of trojans! (am taking appropriate action agianst the retail outlet that did the work) So my question is
If I switch the master and slave configuration (my slave hd is my old hd that has windows installed) and then wipe clean the new hd and reinstall, will that work or will I have conflicts because i have a new mother board that is different from my old mother board. Any help would be appriciated.
