i just plug the 2nd hdd into my 2nd sata port and plug the power cable into the HDD and it works? or do i need to format it or what? also for my video card drivers/sound card drivers and that type of stuff, do i download/install them to my 2nd HDD or on my 1st HDD? not sure which files go on which HDD. if anyone can help thanks
Yes just plug the NEW 2nd HDD to the extra SATA port. Plug the Power to the NEW HDD.
Just let windows startup normally after plugin the NEW 2nd HDD. Windows will auto install HDD driver. Let that run & u may need to restart windows.
Once ok. U need to initialize and format the NEW 2nd HDD.
> RIGHT CLICK My Computer > Manage > Storage - Disk Management > Select your NEW HDD > RIGHT CLICK to Initialize then Format.
If you are NOT formating your original Windows XP Hdd and reinstalling Windows, don't worry about installing video card drivers/sound card drivers.
