I will soon be in possession of a compaq armada 1530 dm with windows 95 and I am worried with a hard drive of this age that it doesn't have much life left in it. My laptop knowledge is rather limited so I have a few questions about replacing the hard drive and what way would be best to go about doing this.
Would it be possible to ghost the drive onto a 2gb partition on a small SSD?
Would it be possible to use a 2gb DOM SSD?
Would it be practical to use a CF card adapter such as this: http://
Or is there a better option?
I like playing with old hardware and I'm familiar with virtual PCs, just thought I'd put that out there.
