Installing Second Hard Drive
Posted on 1999-12-31
Hi! I have a '98 IBM Aptiva PC and I am about to install a second hard drive. The new drive is larger and faster. Should I put the new drive in one IDE port (as master) with my CD ROM in the same port and then put the old, small, slow disk drive in the other IDE (as slave)? How do I back-up my old hard drive? That can't possibly fit on a bunch of 3.5's, can it? How do I go about partitioning programs between the 2 hard drives? Should my operating system (WINDOWS 98)go on the faster master drive? What the heck will happen when I re-boot? This is making me kinda nervous. Will the operating system know what's going on? Help! Thanks!!
