My Dell Dimensions 8100 main hard drive is dieing. I have a second hard drive installed already recognized and with plenty of gigs(60 or 80). The problem is I've never had a computer that started with a different OS. Do I install Windows Me First and then Windows XP?? or do I just install Windows XP on the second drive? Do I disconnect my main drive while I install the OS? Do I change the startup order of the drives/cd/networks? In what order do I do all this? Did I miss any crucial steps? I am not computer illiterate, but this is a new on for me. I could use any guidance out there. This is my only computer, also. Computer is Pentium 4 CPU 1700MHz is 1.68 GHz 256 of RAM
XP Home Edition. If you need any more infor let me know.
