I have a gigabyte P55A UD3. I have a 1 TB SATA with Win 7. I wish to add a second drive with XP already installed. Is it possible to switch from one drive to another? From one OS to another? It's just that I have some old Cadd software on my XP drive I would love to utilize again.
If the OS on Drive #2 supports the same motherboard chip set, maybe it'll boot. Once it boots, it may be possible to install the correct drivers for the (new) motherboard. If that works, it may still run slow. Finally, the OS on Drive #2 will likely need to be re-activated, a mechanical process that should go fine for you, as long as you don't move the drive back and forth between two PCs.
Ya I figured I might hear that. More than anything Id like to keep just the one program on the drive. I still have the old dell it was originally in. Maybe Ill fire it up and just deal with that slug pentium D.
