I bought a computer off of my friend, and im going to take its 60 gig HD and its CD burner out and put it in my computer. I already have both objects out of the computer, but now im not sure what I should do. I have NEVER done anything like this, the biggest thing i've done to my computer was add memory to it.
The hardrive I took out has the OS and everything on it, I already have two HD's in my current computer but will adding this one cause any sort of conflict considering when I boot for the first time it will have a OS on it? Plus, how exactly do I connect it? Just plug in the cords that fit? and boot? Will XP Pro recognize the the hardware and install the needed drivers?
Will someone get on aim or msn messenger and help explain all of this a little clearly for me, my dad is a pc speacalist/network admin and I want to suprise him by doing all of this myself.
