I am going to take a the soundcard, cd-rom, floppy disk drive and hard drive from a HP Multimedia 6100 (P60)and attempt to assemble them on a P133 motherboard. In addition I would like to upgrade the HDD from the Seagate 500 MB to a Samsung 2.1 GIG.
First, do you have any suggestions re: the incompatibility of the devices w/ the new motherboard or should all go well assuming jumpers, BIOS, etc are all set correctly?
Second, Should I use an application such as DriveCopy to move all the data to the new hard drive or is there a more affordable, reliable method by which to do this. If so, please offer some suggestions as to the steps I need to take to format and new HDD, move the data and use the new HDD as the only HDD. Thank you in advance.
