Quick SSD Install question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just installed my first SSD and Windows is on there just fine. To install Windows on the SSD I unplugged the HDDs I was already using. I was hoping that after the SSD install I could just plug my HDDs back in and the computer would find all of the programs and drivers that were on those discs but that doesn't seem to be happening.

I can open he directory of those discs and see the programs, but they aren't running.

Any advice on how to get everything back up and running would be great.

Thanks,
-Bill

I dont know if im 100% correct but when installing windows on another drive HDD or SSD you will have a new set a regerstry and file location.

You would need to install all the programs again so that they in the regerstry.

If not you try and go thought your old HHD regersrty and find all the infomation on each program import it the key to your new install and edit it to look for the program on the other drive.

I would just install the programs again and use custom install and install them on the other drive.

Yeah, cool, reinstalling now. As SSD's go this thing isn't the fastest by far but it's still funny how fast programs are popping open.
