Cloning a boot drive is very unlikely to work. New motherboard generally requires a new OS install or you end up with many frustrating driver problems.

The P4 2.8gb "IS" your cpu. I hate it when someone refers to a PC as a CPU. Two totally different things.

Why would you want to clone your new hdd (Whats on the new drive? Windows?) to the slave drive?

I don't understand why you want to do this. You can use Acronis true image, but I don't understand the logic of cloning your new drive to your old one.

Oops. Ithough the P4 2.8Gz is a processor unit. By the way thank guy. Cheers

Dear friend,
I get this as a backup when my new hdd finish all the OS & update installation. Sometimes we may get system corrupted or virus attack when surf net, then this backup can clone back to the corrupted hdd to save d hassle re-installation.By d way any recomended antivirus freeware? Previously i did use the acronis but it only for trial period. However I manage find another option which is Easus Todo 1.1 Backup. Is quit good freeware.

Oops. Any ans for Q2?
Apreciated.
