I recently got a new spinpoint f3 1tb hdd and I want it to be my new OS hdd now to replace my current one.
Would I have to disconnect my current OS hdd, connect the new one, install my OS on it (Win7), and then it should be okay for me to reconnect my old hdd to move files over? Where would I set it so that the new hdd is the boot one?
I would use a program such as Acronis to clone the contents of the original drive to the new drive. Then I would plug the new drive into the same SATA port on the motherboard that the old drive used. That way, it is bootable without needing to change BIOS settings.
