Default Re: Fixing to completely wipe hard drives..... Need Help

Is it important for you to do a fresh reinstall? If not, (from what I've gathered from the topic anyway), I'd suggest to use Ghost or Acronis to copy your existing drive over to your new 80GB drive. It'll retain your OS, and all your programs, etc. I've done this many times, and it has always worked for me.
