|Currently, I have 1 drive with XP and a second drive only with data. I am upgrading to a new PC, but I'd like to hold off on buying another HDD, so I won't have a fresh clean HDD to install XP on.|
Can I take the drive with data, put it in the new PC, and install XP on it without having to wipe all the data clean? I'd try it myself, but I'm waiting on a power supply to run the new PC, and if I need to get a new HDD to properly install XP then I'd like to do it ahead of time.
I know it's possible, if difficult to use the existing XP drive, but it's old and slow, and if one of my components is DOA, I want to be able to use it on the old PC until I get the new one working. Thanks in advance for any help
