Using an old hard drive with a new build Tags: New Build Gaming Hard Drives New Build Systems Last response: April 25, 2010 7:45 PM in Systems Share MAC709 April 25, 2010 7:27:26 PM I've got my friend's old gaming rig that has everything except a hard drive. Instead of buying a new hard drive and a new os can I just install an old hard drive running windows xp? What kind of configurations would I have to do?
