Not sure if this question has been asked before, I have searched the forum, however have not found exact answer.
I have a Dell 4700 which is using a SATA HDD as its primary OS. I have acquired an IDE HDD which I would like to install and use as a secondary OS. Is this possible and would I just be a case of connecting up using this using the CD/DVD ribbon.
Be sure the ribbon is 80 pin; they are usually color coded blue on one end. Set your ide drive as secondary (slave) using the jumper on the drive; the jumper settings are listed on the drive label or on the website.
