changing hardrive / building computer
Posted on 2004-09-12
I am in the final stages of building my first computer. Here is my issue:
To keep costs down since I am giving the new computer I am building away, i wanted to copy my current hardvie on the new one and install it in the home built computer.
I copied/formatted all the files including boot files from my current OS ME on a HP store bought computer to the new hardrive. Upon trying to boot from the HP computer from this new drive nothing happens. In the Bios it is not even seen at all.
Do i have to buy a new OS and start from scrach?
