I thought I was told that putting in my HDD;s with the OS's on wouldn't work. I just want to know one way or the other..
I have and IDE 160 GB drive with XP Home. I bought a SATA 1.5 TB and upgraded the XP Home to XP Pro (using XP Pro Upgrade). I do not have but this one XP Pro Upgrade CD,
I have now put in my MB/CPU/RAM. I am definanltly having problems. Had to change out the DIMMS. One bad and they were Corsairs made for Intel i5. Bought the ones I should (and would have, if the wife didn't press me to go so cheap), which are Patriots made for AMD. I did not even think it mattered. I have an OC board, so the cheaper ones stated it could OC to 1600 mhz. I thought that was a good thing.
Now, I need to know, when I set the DVD abd IDE HDD in the proper Master/Slave orientation AND I put the SATA in one of the SATA cinnectors, I should be able to boot a bootable CD, Right? I do not care if I have clean install or what ever Windows XP Pro, using this upgrade. XP Home will still be on the UDE, and XP Pro will still be on the SATA. I should be able to do something productive, right?
I just want thins thig to work. It all was expensive in money and now in time.
