I have a HP desktop that the original drive is making noises and sometimes at startup will display a operating system not found message. Other times it will boot up then after working awhile will pop up with no operating system found all of the sudden.
I have a maxtor 80 gig hooked up as a slave.
Will the bios on my HP let me load the OS on the slave drive or do I have to go into the case and change it to the master.
I also don't have a Windows 98se disc I have a recovery disc that came with the HP. Will that disc load the OS onto another companys hard drive
