Can I connect a dead laptop drive (uses windows XP) to a new pc (windows 7) using a SATA to SATA cable.
If so can I set up a dual boot?
One drive in XP the other in Win 7?

What if I don't have the CD's for either system?
Thanks so much for your help.

It took a few days but I found CD's for both pc's. As soon as I get an enclosure for the tiny laptop hdd I'll be set to go.
Thanks so much for your help.
