Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. If you want to install the hd from your old computer as a slave drive for data storage etc, no problem. Just set the jumper to slave and install it on the slave connector of the EIDE ribbon cable.
what about all the programs and drives that are installed on it from the old computer will those be deleted automatically or cause any kind of trouble at all?

I set the old one from C/S to slave and the one in it from C/S to Master. When I went to get into my files it said "Access Denied." So I thought "okay, my old windows password maybe." I tried to reboot in slave but it went straight to the same boot up from the master drive. Am I doing something wrong here? I've been reading stuff about this all day and ran into something about taking the jumpers on both of them back to the C/S. Is this right? A little more guidance would be greatly appreciated!
