I just bought a Gateway with a 40 GB Hardrive running on Windows XP.
I would like to install the 10 GB hardrive from my Compaq (for additional storage and so I don't have to transfer all my programs/data for which I don't have all the original installation disks).
I have no knowledge of what the old HD is and do not have any manuals etc.
I have added secondary HD before to other machines, but don't remember the specifics.
Does anyone know a site that will show me how secondary jumpers need to set, etc. so it doesn't boot from the second, and will allow me to access data?
Thanks in advance.
