So I'm at King's College in London and we've got an old comp running Win98 that runs some equipment here. However, this thing is definately on its last leg. I want to clone the comp to a new spec computer because all of the programs that run the equipment are only on 98. The computer uses two RS-485 com ports to talk to a PLC.
I was thinking about getting the following computer: http://www.misco.co.uk/applications/...&sourceid=9000
Also, I figured I'd just put a PCI card that had two RS-485 ports.
I've cloned computers from one to another but only ever to an exact same spec computer. Do you think this will work? Anything I need to be aware of?
Also, if possible I wanted to dual boot. I figured I'd put two HDDs one with the cloned partition and the other running XP.
Thanks for any advice that anyone can give.
