That'll work. If you're sure you have all the files you wanted and that they open properly...configure the drive back to master as it was, and install it back in the original machine. Unfortunately, Windows configures to hardware, so we'll have to work on the OS in the original machine.

Once you have things back the way they were, let us know and we'll see if we can get you up and running again.

Once you had it in the working computer, I would have put all files and information I wanted to keep and then use the Dell Cd's to restore the system. Windows XP needs to be restored to the original at least once a year anyways because then you can get rid of garbage information and repair the registry. Repairing to the original is easy to do and will help your system run at its full potential again.

Glad to hear you got the pictures hope you get the rest of the system running....
