In an easy to follow direction: How do i Install a New Hard-drive, and deal with the New Operating System?
Posted on 2004-11-22
Hello, this is another new question spawned from my orginial.
I purchased from best buy last night ( online ) a 300GB maxtor 7200rpm Hard-Drive and Microsoft: windows XP Professional upgrade w/SP2.
I currently have an 40GB hard drive with Windows XP Home Edition w/SP2.
1. My question is that, How ( in easy steps ) do i Install the new hard drive?
2. How easy is it to then install the new operating system, on a fresh, brand new hard drive?
* i was told that the computer would identify it as 128gb???? how do i avoid this? *
The points are 500, because i find this harder, then i thought it would be. And paying $99.95 is better then paying 150+ for somebody else to do. Thanks guys! + gals!
