If you're talking to me:

I don't, I want it for secondary storage (Documents, stuff like that.) I might throw my TEMP folder over there. (If I can figure out how). But I'm mostly trying to do it just to see if I can.

I just went thru almost the same thing when i upgraded. Here is what i did: put my CD drive as slave and kept the HDD as master (with slave present). They are both on the same IDE cable. The hard drive is located on the top bay (where a dvd or cd drive would normally go) and the CD drive underneath. Make sure your pins are right so you have the HDD as master and the CD as slave. When you boot, you must go into the bios and manually set the HDD to slave and the CD as master, or you might be able to get away with saying 'cable select' if you have the option. save the settings to CMOS and you should be good to go.

also, make sure your boot order is such that the CD boots first and then the HDD, so that if you need to load windows from a CD you can.

So you built a new PC... and want to use your old OS on your new rig?

Well I can tell you .. Big Cousin.. ahem Microsoft is not going to like that very much.

As they want you to buy a new OS and then 2 years of customer service for 300 bucks (where some Indian guy with a bad accent named 'Roger' will read a script to you)- every time you change hardware..

If I were you this is what I would try.

Get your old OS install disk, and install it into your new rig.

Then put your old HD back into your old box.. get an ethernet cable and transfer what files you want from old pc to new pc... save them on a partition to organize later.

Get the program D-ban http://dban.sourceforge.net/

Follow the instructions to make a boot disk.. put the boot disk in your old pc.. and clean the HD totally clean.. (make sure that all of your files that you want are off the HD- as once you do Dban.. every thing is gone.. and it is completely unrecoverable.. not even the FBI can assist you with a recovery).. Once Dban is done..

Take your old HD out of your old PC.. place fresh new HD into your new box.. hook it up to be a slave to your Sata.. and format the drive.... And viola.. you have your old hd in your new pc..

As for your OS.. Certainly you will have to update.. Certainly you will have to re authenticate the key and so forth..

Anyhow good luck.
Newborn beast..

If I just take all the stuff including program file, WINDOWS, etc from my ide drive which is a slave and Copy and Paste over to the sata will all my stuff work? Will that carry over everything from the registry? Thanks

I do not think that will work, and I would not recommend it even if it did.. as you are asking for problems big time..

Why are you trying to avoid installing a fresh copy of Windows to your new rig?

Do you have a valid copy of your OS? ???

Are you stuck on a 56k modem?


My old and tired rig takes about 23 minutes to install xp.. then I have about another 25 minutes of updating max via downloading files. Check my specs below...Your PC should totally obliterate my times...

It may not be the most enjoyable hour or so of my life... It is like bathing a cat or dog, its a bit of a pain.. but it is so much nicer to pet when they are clean.

If somethings worth doing.. It is worth doing right!!

Burn the programs you want to keep to a CD then...

They sound like pirated programs to me.. as if you own them you either have the disks or if they are free, you can certainly find them again.

Either way I am sorry but I am going to have to report you to the appropriate government agency.

Please do not resist.
