- yes u do have to reinstall Windows on the old hardrive, but first u need to format it, its because ur new computer will be using different hardware and u have drivers that are installed on it which will confuse the new computer and will give u errors.Well if u dont have windows Cd i'd suggest buying one if u dont have one because ull need it to reintall windows on ur new pc.
yes, most of the stuff u can access that are in ur old but when its set as a secondary Hd, because when u format it everything is deleted.
No, some stuff cant be accessed in ur hd that are in ur "Documents and Settings" because were stored on ur desktop from ur old pc. i'd suggest backing everything to a cd or a flash drive
