my old computer is an hp pavilion, with a wd caviar 320gb hd with xp pro sp2. i want to use the larger drive on the dell as master.
what i was thinking, is that i can put the small drive as slave on the hp, copy my files to it, see if they work on the dell, then format the large drive, put it as master on the dell, and reinstall xp. then, slave the small drive to copy over the files again.
if there's a better way, please let me know. i'm using the large drive on hp pavilion until i can find a reliable way to transfer files.
btw, i would also like to know if there's a trick to get the copied files working smoothly with a fresh xp.
