Hi there. I was just looking to aska quick question. I've recently finished building a new gaming rig. it's a hell of a step up from my old one. the only thing is, I cheaped out and decided not to buy a hard drive (since I have 7200rpm 500GB Seagate one in my old pc, and that was adequate enough for my needs) and I was wondering if putting this old hard drive from my old pc into the new gaming rig, would completely wipe everything (cause of drastic hardware changes) - Is this true? I have around 285GB of stuff that isn't backed up (60GB of music, 100GB of films, and the rest is just assorted crap that I wouldn't mind losing, save for a few pictures...) and I don't have any storage media large enough to back it up. I'd just like to know if I'm safe in doing this. Thanks a lot.
Oh, P.S. A friend of mine says that all I would have to do is configure the BIOS to boot from HDD instead of an optical drive. Is this true? Thanks again
