I have Windows 2000 on an existing 8GB scsi hard drive. I tried to install an 80GB Western Digital ultra ata hard drive to my computer with no avail. My bios wouldn't detect it or it would try to boot from it. Could someone explain this please? If not, then could someone explain how to mirror my hard drive to my new one. I think I could use Norton Ghost and save the image to my network. Then take out the scsi drive and install the ultra ata drive, but I'm not sure where I go from there. How do i load the image from the network to this new drive? Would it be easier if I had an external hard drive? Still not sure how to load the image from external hard drive to the WD hard drive if I did this either. Any help would be appreciated.

If your computer can accept a ATA drive install it and mirror it from within the computer. Go into the BIOS and change the boot order. You should have sotfware that came with that drive that will take care of the incompatiblity issue. If not the drive's web site should have it for download.
