Re: Re installing XP because WIN 7 trial has ended.
Sounds good so far guys,
The reason I ask is becasue in another thread I had two laptops and
one had a dud HDD. I took the one HDD from the first laptop and put
it in the other laptop and it would not start even though they both had xp.
So the next question is:
I have 2 hdd in the desktop computer one new one old.
The new hard drive is a samsung F3 1tb dirve, apparently pretty fast.
The one with the OS is much slower than this one, 320gb.
For maximum performance using xp 32bit. Should I copy all the backup info
to the slower HDD. Then use the new samsung F3 drive to do a clean install
on. And use the smaller 320gb HDD as a spare drive?
And with xp don't they say to move a page file or somthing over to a second
drive if available for better performance?
(or should I get a SSD for the OS, lol. I wish I had the spare cash)
