Wondering if you lovely people might be able to help me.
My old business desk top refuses to start up so I bought an external hard drive docking station so I could take out the desktop's hard drive to use with my lap top.
The lap top finds the 2nd hard drive on the USB, but I have a problem in that my documents on this drive are password protected on my windows account on that drive so I can't access them. I can't get the laptop to boot from this external hard drive- in the BIOS setup there is no option to boot from USB as such (floppy, CD or hard drive are the options) although there is a check box for USB mass storage device it didn't seem to help.
So, two questions really- is there a way I can boot from the windows XP installed on the external drive? Or is there a way I can put my windows password in to unlock my documents that are on the external drive?
All help much appreciated!!!
