I have Barracuda 7200.14 ST1000DM003 1TB in the post, and trying to find out if I can avoid new win install. In Seagate manual it says to plug your new hard drive (after cloning)into old one's connection. Old one is Barracuda 7200.8 PATA?
Can I do it with Seagate software or is there other way aroud it.
I build my new system Year ago using old HD, it served me well, but it's time to catch up with reality
Also can You tell me if I can trust my new HD (mixed feedback on those new drive tech) or should use old one to watch it (7200.14 opinions welcome)
It seams I have to answer my own question after all, so I found this tutorial http://support.seagate.com/kbimg/flash/laptop/laptop.ht...
That shows You how to Clone Your HDD and use it as nothing ever changed using Seagate Discwizard, and it looks great. But I can't put my new SATA3 drive into the same PC slot PATA (wide old ugly cable thingy). So did anyone used that software before and did similar thing? I am away from my House for a while, so can't acces my PC, but maybe it's an easy BIOS change? Or I'm the only dinosaur with PATA
