Well i just came across my other HDD yesterday… (200 gig) and i thought, instead of installing Linux on my HDD i have connected right now…
why not install it on my other HDD. My problem being that, if i was too do this im not sure if my HDD would be able to connect to my motherboard as i’m not the internal know your PC stuff guy… (well i know basic things…).
See thats another problem i still have to sort
my front 4 USB slots arent working and all my USB slots in the back are full.
I was thinking about doing as you said… but the USB thing is doing my head in.
OK is the drive you’ve found IDE or SATA?, if it has a million pins at one end it’s IDE, and as long as your other drive is also IDE (and you only have one installed) you WILL be able to connect it, as you can connect 2 IDE devices to the same cable, you just have to set one as master and the other as slave.
if it’s SATA, you will need to see if there is a spare SATA connector on your motherboard.
