I have a 40gb hard drive in my new machine that is running Win XP Pro - I have another hard drive 20gb (which was from my old PC) which I have formatted, and connected to my new PC, it is labelled: F
I have changed the jumpers so that F is the slave.
I would like to be able to have another copy of XP (or Win 98) on the 20gb hard drive, and then be able to dual boot either of the operating sytems.
I am not too sure how to go about this! I was thinking of changing the boot order so that the CDROM booted (before the hard drive primary) in the BIOS. Then I was going to stick the Win98 or XP disc in the CD ROM and install the OS onto F.
Would I have to disconnect my 40gb Win XP drive first? - and just have the 20gb drive connected to the PC (as the master). Then when the install was complete (on F) could I then reconnect my 40gb WinXp and everything will be ok?
If anybody could help me with this task, or offer any suggestions I would be really very grateful.
