... you could try this free (clone) software, hooking up the drive as slave to ribbon cable the purple edge always points to the power connecter on the harddrive, alter the jumper (if needed) to suit aswell as master/slave setting in the bios

... more info here.

... if its a sata drive (fittings look different than the above) which do not need jumpers, The motherboard will boot off the drive connected to the #1 connector unless you change the Boot order in the BIOS.

Demonstrative exspelling
... there is logic to this madness!

We could answer it if we know the exact OS.

Yes, in almost all OS's that I know of one can install from any OS to any OS. With some tricks.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I wanted to install windows 7 to the other hard drive. My DVD drive isn't working, but I have a copy of the iso saved on my hard disk. So is it possible to install windows 7 to another hard drive from windows xp?
