First of all, looks like a good forum
My question is about setting up a new harddrive which is on it's way to me as I type. I've had a breif search and can't see this anywhere, but I appologise if I'm repeating.....
My set up is a lowly P3 450MHz. 192MB Ram, and a dying 6GB Harddrive.
Win XP Pro.
Apart from the dying harddrive, performance is passable for what I use it (browsing and autoCAD), though obviously I'd prefer something better. So, I'll be upgrading the lot bit by bit along the line. But the dying harddrive is first port of call.
I've ordered THIS CONTROLLER
and THIS DRIVE.
I'll be taking the current drive out as like I've said, it's on its last legs and at 6GB isn't big enough to compensate for my small penis or lack of a BMW
So the new drive will be my main drive.
So what I'm hoping for is a sort of Idiot/MO proof step by step guide to replacing the current IDE drive with the SATA controller and SATA drive and getting it up and running. I've got everything I need off the current drive backed up to CD already.
Despite what you may think from my highly technical lingo, I'm actualy not as clued up on these things as you may have thought
So as simple and broke down as possible please.
