I’m trying to extract files stored on an old SCSI drive that was my BOOT drive -- save them to a SATA drive -- zero fill the SCSI (wipe it clean) -- and proceed to install (my same) XP PRO license on a new Asrock SATA 3 drive. What complicates things is I no longer have the SCSI motherboard, and am plugging the drive into a 68-Pin SCSI >Adaptec Card to access the drive. I was completely unprepared to see my old drive booting off a card! Gotta love Adaptec, eh? The SCSI drive is happy to see itself (even if on a card) but enters an endless loop.
Whether I perform this extraction task before installing the new SATA build, or after, at some point I'm going to need to disable Adaptec from cutting to the front of the line and overriding the boot sequence I set up in Asrock's BIOS [#1 SATA, #2 DVD] so I can install my same XP Pro license on the new SATA build. I’d like to nip this in the bud first, if possible. Thanks
