I have the old drive working, for the time being, so I'm using a laptop to back up the drive to an external 1TB drive. The laptop is running Windows 7.
Can I restore my old hard drive info to the new hard drive from the external drive? Will it matter that I backed it up using a computer running Windows 7?
I would unhook the hard drive from the laptop and hook it up to the desktop computer, but I'm afraid I won't be able to get it to run again. It makes a clicking sound- you can hear it trying to start up, then it clicks a few times, and then cycles down.
When I put in the restore disc, the new hard drive was formatted, but I haven't done anything else to update the windows version, etc.
Thanks for any help!
