I will try to explain what I know.
The new MB won't work with the HDs I have since the old MB is outdated I guess (3 yrs. old).
If I was just a regular user, it wouldn't matter cuz I'd just install Win 2000, install all my programs etc., but I have tons of stuff that has to be moved over to the fresh HD & one or two problem areas like I have a security program that won't work if I move it & put it on a new HD. I'd have to reinstall everything.
Also getting PDF Writer reinstalled plus every other program that isn't just easy to find & install b/c I bought it from online etc. <sigh>
So we are trying to make it so Win is installed on a new HD & all my data & programs stay on the old one.
My board was integrated with no additional slots. We wanted to upgrade b4, but didn't have the money. He came across a good deal on this other MB with a slot, so he grabbed it.
The partner would have to explain in more detail but he's sleeping right now LOL
I hope that explains more & thanks
