Upgrade time for my work...slight issues...
Ok so my boss ordered tons of new motherboards, CPU's, RAM, cases, PSU's etc the whole works...except new hard drives. He wants to upgrade his Dell Dimension 3000's. Keep his OS settings and what not, but in new cases with upgrades. Here is what he got.
OS Windows XP Pro SP3 Genuine
Quantity---5---ARK A601-1 ATX Mid Tower's with included 500 Watt PSU
Quantity---5---AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma Black Edition
Quantity---5---4GB A-Data DDR2 800 RAM
Quantity---5---Foxconn A74MX-K MOBO
Quantity---5---XFX GeForce 9400GT 1GB
Now, everything WORKS as meaning, I tested all components, so no DOA's which is AWESOME...however, I never messed with Dell computers before and I was wondering can I migrate the Dell HDD's to the new setups while keeping everything intact on the HDD? Or do I have to format...I really DONT wanna format only because he WILL NOT spend money on any backup system V_V
In theory, cant I disable the Dell MOBO etc in device settings? I have done that with other PC's, but not Dell's...
HELP PLEASE! THANKS!!!!!!!!!
