Ray, Will 2nd operating system work on slave hard drive? I am trying Vista again on new board & cpu on new 80 gig primary. My Xp Home is on another hard drive & will need to be re-authorised. I am putting this drive in as slave. Have been told that if I run XP on 2nd drive that it will cause possible problems. I would much rather run XP on the drive it is on rather than partition primary drive. I know I can read 2nd drive files & get everything off it as the reason for new board etc. is that the XP mother board got fried.
Thank you, Terry

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

   I should make no difference whether it is on a slave or master drive.  If installed correctly, it will run correctly.

Thank you Ray
That's what I thought, was told by store that I'm buying latest tech version board from that it may cause problems. I  can reformat Vista primary if it doesn't work any better than it did last year, as they claim it now runs much better, & swap that drive to slave.
It will be same XP reinstalling on the same drive it was on, which was a new install on formated disk on that drive originally.
Thanks again, Terry
