Using existing hard drive

Have a question for you guys. I am upgrading to a power PC from my 5 year old Pentium II 400. I plan on buying a Pentium IV 3 gig, new Asus motherboard, new ram, new graphics card, and new case but I want to use my existing two year old, 40 gig hard drive. Is there a way to use this hard drive with its existing load with the new computer so I don’t have to reload all my software? My current OS is Windows 98. Thanks in advance.

  1. you should be able to by removing the chipset drivers and letting windows install the generic ones that come with win98 then when you change over simply install the chipset drivers for the new board. i think this will work, but if i am wrong, it wont take long before i know about it:)

  2. Yeah, you should be able to use it. I used one of my 6 year old hard drives on my new computer and it worked.
