Recovering data off a bad drive
Posted on 2005-03-14
have a Quantum Fireball Harddrive running Windows 98se --that is going bad...wont even boot up. My plan is to use my new XP Pro PC .. set is to master...and set the Quantum Fireball to slave, to see if i can access any of the data on that slave drive. My question is this....Do I need to have both hard drives running the same OS, or can they be different such as what I currently have? I know i'll be changing jumpers to reflect both master/slave harddrives -- and -- adjusting the settings in the bios. Is there anything else I need to know before installing the Quantum harddrive?
