I am trying to determine why my 2nd computer is having performance difficulties. I am assuming it is because the mb and cpu are old, but I wanted to rule out the HD first. When moving the HD to my main computer, it won't allow my mouse or keyboard to work, and I am assuming this is because of the hardware list created and seeing as it doesn't match my main computer, it wont work. What confuses me though, I can access the HD on the main computer if I make the HD a slave to my regular HD.
Is this normal, or make any sense?
Also, is there a way that I could make the 2nd HD work on my main computer, without being a slave? If there is a way, I wouldn't want to lose any data and be able to revert the 2nd HD to the way it is now once I am done.
