  1. When you add the 80 g hd is the other hd still in the computer?

    If yes, is a version of Windows on the 80g HD? If so the computer may be confused as where to boot from because of hareware conflicts.

    If no, if the 80g HD is from a different computer with different hardware the computer will not boot because the operating system incorporates information from the hardware.

    So need to reinstall windows if trying to use the 80g hd for a boot drive.

    If using as a data drive then just uninistall windows.
