Re: New hard drive



I would disconnect the power cable from the slave drive.

Try booting to the XP CD and see if the wireless mouse and keyboard work.

I need to replace my primary hard drive. Do I need to take the slave out

a wireless keyboard and mouse? Will I need a "wired" setup to get going?

Thanks!

Are you reinstalling windows on the new drive or are you
"ghosting" your old to the new?
