My dads HP crashed, the HDD failed. So we went and bought a new one, (he wouldnt let me build him one), He has an old HP with a 160gb HDD, 512mb oF ram, and a P4 2.6 with XP Home. Should I replace the HDD and keep it? Maybe a torrent box. Or I could add some ram and it for music? Or put linux on it. Might Check into seeing if its compatible with a Dual Core..
EDIT - If I decide to trash this thing. Can i Build a new desktop, and take the recovery drive out of the old HP and use it to install XP Home on new build?
