Re: Switching between hdd's
No!!!.......don't format!! You will lose all the data on the laptop drive!!
Just plug the laptop drive into the new computer and follow the instructions I gave. You don't need the laptop, the point is to adapt the old hard drive to the new computer so it needs to be plugged into the new computer so vista will install the drivers needed for the devices in the new pc.
BUT DON'T FORMAT!!
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
