So I gave up on trying to set the old as master. Everything runs fine; I can open up files from the old hard drive and move them to the new one without any problems. However some things don't work. These are the issues I've encountered:
- Winamp: Whenever I open the program (installed on the old hard drive), the following error message pops up: "The ordinal 735 could not be located in the dynamic link library PX.dll." But it works normally besides that.
- Microsoft Office: I can't open up any of the programs. It says "The operating system is not presently configured to run this application." It's not installed on the new hard drive, and it would be useful if I could regain access to them before school starts again.
- Blizzard games: I don't have access to the cd keys I used to install them on the old hard drive, and I can't run them without first reinstalling them on the new hard drive.
I tried running Norton Ghost 12.0 to copy the files onto the new hard drive, but it doesnt work: "This operation cannot be performed while Windows is running. You must complete this operation inside the recovery environment."
So now I'm all out of ideas. My objective is to either 1. set the old hard drive as master, or 2. be able to run the programs on the old hard drive normally. Thanks for any and all help.
