Hi

I am currently running a DELL 4100 with Win ME 20GB HD
I want to install XP pro on a second hard drive in the Computer like a dual HD system
Is there a site where I can find out how to do this with 2 OS and 2 hard drives?

or you can make more partitions of a harddisk without losing data
so,if u got data on the hdd on which u wanna install win xp,and dont got space to copy it on 1st hdd,then partition it with partition magic(www.powerquest.com)
but it,it worths it

OK how 'bout this: Can I move ME onto my new HDD, then upgrage XP onto that? What software allows you to change the OS' hard drive? I want to get rid of my old one, as i have two new ones.

Actually, I belive you can install the upgrade as if it were a full install. iirc, all the upgrade asks for is an old windows cd to verify previous purchase of a windows platform (or at least, that's how I remember win2k as being).

Well..if you can upgrade from 98/ME to 2000/XP/NT, then I don't think you'll need the old (98/ME) files since it's a complete new filesystem and almost everything is changed..so I beleive the upgrade replaces each and everyfile required by the OS to run..so you'll have everything you need with just an upgrade. :)

just to be completely sure of myself (ha!), when I put in the XP cd, it will ask me which drive I want to put it on, and I can choose my new one, yeah? I havent bought it yet.
