Copying From a Hard Drive Query

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've got a question to ask. My current desktop doesn't have a power supply and my most recent music library is saved on the hard drive with the OS on it. Yeah...stupid decision...I know. If I take it out and put it in another desktop lying around the house, just to copy the music, will there be any side-effects on the other computer? And when I do get a PSU, will I have any problems with the OS?

You can do it as long as you select the boot priority in bios.

The easiest way is to throw it in an external HD enclosure.
