    Default PC Question

    I want to buy a SataII Hard disk and put as my Master Drive then put my current IDE drive as Slave. Can this different hard disk work? Thanks.

    But i have to install OS on the new SataII Hard Disk and bootup from there. The Slave ATA drive with OS install previously can leave it alone?

    Yes... but what for? OS takes up space. You should set it up with the OS first (it will work). Then transfer all the files you want to keep from the Slave ATA drive to the SATA drive. After that, just reformat the Slave ATA drive. It will be nice and clean after that. You can then move the files back if you wish.

    Remember to delete the old bootup OS from boot.ini
