Hey tech forums,
I just bought a new Dell XPS 410 it came with Vista home basic.
Dell Product Page
I want to take the hard drive out of my old Dell B110 and put it in the empty slot in the XPS and use it to run XP. Can I do this?
Vista will not work with a lot of the software I have and is awful for gaming.
I've read in another forum that if you have both Vista and XP loaded on one comp, then XP would have to be loaded first or Vista wouldn't work. But does that still apply if they are on 2 different hard drives.
Also if I can do this, would I have to do a new install on the hard drive or could I just move it?
Any help with any of this would appreciated.
Why not format the XPS 410 and use a XP recovery disk to install XP on the XPS 410? Thats much easier.
