Can I install another hard drive in my computer( dell dimension 4550) to have another os on it?
I have xp pro now- I have another bay in my tower-
if its possible - does it matter if both drives are on primary IDE or Secodary IDE - or should they be on separate ones?
And If I have to buy another IDE cable to reach- Does any IDE cable work? or Do I have to get exact kind thats in my pc now?
I would like to install windows xp the other drive too.
If this is possible can you give me basic steps.
(And Can an External hard drive be used in place of installing another internal Hard drive?)
