ok this is kinda a long read so be prepared....

Ok here's the situation...

What i have right now:

i have 3 Hard Drives ....a 70GB hDD (the one that came with my computer) in my computer....a 200GB hDD that I bought earlier...and a 500GB hDD that i Just bought....the 200GB and the 70GB are filled up with stuff so that's why i bought the 500GB.

Here's what I want...

1. I want to put the 200GB in my xbox so i want to copy everything that's on it now to the 500GB and erase it so i have a clean 200GB hdd in my xbox

2. This is where i'm having the problem...ultimately i want the 500GB to be the main or primary drive in my computer...like the C: drive that has xp and program files and stuff like that on there...and the 70GB hdd to be the secondary hdd in my computer...but i have no idea how to make the 500 run as my primary like i want it too...i've been messin with this all day...using norton ghost and messin with the bios settings...everything is at default now though but i need help...

PS...if u have an easier way than what i'm doing im open to options....

UPDATE: ok ...i got it too boot from my new drive (the 500GB) but i think i might have done the norton ghost image wrong or something because when it boots from the new 500GB hdd a black screen just comes up with a blinking cursor...anybody good with norton ghost?

Hello allen0801,

Do you have any programs that you have lost the setup file for?
Do you have your Operating system Disks?
