Temporarily Adding a Second Hard Drive to Rescue Files
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have been asked to try and retrieve some old information from an oldish hard drive.
I am just asking to make sure what I think I am supposed to do is correct. I can add second hard drives with ease, etc. But it's just because I assume this Hard Drive will have an OS on it.
Ok, here I go:
I set the new HDD to SLAVE, put the new HDD in the case, Attach the middle ribbon cable + molex connector. I set my current HDD to master (as it has no jumpers in atm) and power on.
Here's where it all becomes a mystery. Does it bring up a dual boot screen? What letter drive will it appear as (I have A: C: D: E: F: on my test rig I'm doing this on)?
Any further information would be helpful.
Thanks in Advance.
