Re: Question about HDDs
Gday, yes you can do that!
Make sure that your bios is booting off your windows drive before continuing.
Install the HDD, boot of CD, then install the Linux image on the new drive.
Then you should have a option at the POST screen (might be F12) to change your boot device, select your new Linux drive, and assuming that you have installed the GRUB boot loader or other boot loader, the Linux OS WILL boot and start the system.
Hope this helps.
Let me know how it goes.
I hope that the world runs out of oil today so we can build a world free of hate and greed and money. Build one based on love and respect for all forms of life.
