02-27-2007, 10:01 AM

I have just finished assembling a new PC and have yet to try and turn it on. MAJOR ANXIETY!!! The new PC consists of an Antec Performance TX1050B with 500W power supply; 3.5floppy, 160 gig WD SATA hard drive; Intel DG965WH mother board with integrated video; Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz processor; 2Gb A-Data DDR2-800 memory and a Plextor DVD burner (E-IDE).

I built my old one in May of 2003 and I’d like to copy my old drive information to the new SATA drive from the old E-IDE drive. How do I do this? Can I take the old one out, set it as the “slave” (on the ribbon with the E-IDE DVD) and make the transfer that way? What do I have to do to the new drive to prepare it? Will the info on the old drive make the BIOS on the new MB go crazy? ANXIETY, ANXIETY, ANXIETY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I have a page for this question since I do get it a lot.
