do i need firewire
Posted on 2003-03-01
i have the primary hdd w/win98 installed.. brand new secondary not installed
i want to have 2 separate harddrives
will it do if i just pop the secondardy hdd in and connect the ribbon?. then how do i access the secondary harddrive to install win xp w/out activating the other harddrive.. will it go thru the master and ask which harddrive
after i pop in the harddrive how do i install xp on the second harddrive without replacing win98(1st ed) on the primary.
is the thing asking which harddrive to use built into win98? or the cpu firmware?
somebody said xp will ask u which user u want... but thats for the same harddrive and i think thats shared applications or something.
i dont want any software shared.
dont give me a microsoft link cuz that dont explain it its just for partitioning a single hdd
or would i need a firewire card to connect the hdds and then partition it ..
