Sorry if I'm being a bit dim.....I clicked F2 to get into the BIOS and set the boot sequence. I have now found the part of the BIOS that shows the 2 hard drives.
The new drive is there & the old drive is recognised and listed as a slave.
The video talked about CMOS and I hadn't heard that term before...I am assuming that it is the BIOS.
I'm not sure what to do now???
(The USB portals seem to be recognised & enabled)
AS suggested earlier, I set up the new hard drive without the slave in place and only added this once everything was up and running on the new one.
I have just had (yet) another look at the tuition video and at the end he talks about partioning & formatting the hard drive.
Clearly, the whole point of going down the route that we have was to secure the photos / music etc on the old drive but do I have to do something else with the windows xp disk in order for the data (and the hard drive) to become visible on "My Computer" & Explorer?
