Quick OS/Hard Drive Question Tags: Hard Drives Windows XP Motherboards Seagate Storage Last response: February 16, 2010 7:15 PM in Storage Share Anonymous Motherboard Authority February 16, 2010 5:15:49 PM Let's say I have an 80GB Seagate Hard Drive with Windows XP on it. If I replace my motherboard with one that is better, can I use the old Hard Drive and have the OS boot and run perfectly?
