My motherboard crashed on one of my computers. I have a new computer that I wanna transfer the files to. How do i go about doing this? They are both running XP. Thanks
Depending on what interface the old hard drive runs on ide or sata just plug it onto the mobo as a secondary drive. This means it will not be the (Primary Hard drive) as the one already in your NEWER pc is the PRIMARY boot drive with the operating system on it.
The hard drive will pick up if you have it connected correctly and you might have to configure it properly in the bios (DEPENDING on certain situations).. You gave me limited info but this is really easy to setup. If both hard drive interfaces are different you will have to go into the bios for sure and make check the other hard drive is pickup up properly. Might have to change hard drive mode etc..
