Hello! I've got some quick questions. I'm going to be building a new computer soon. Pretty much new everything except for the hard drive. I want to move my hard drive over to the new computer, but from what I've looked up, that would require me re-installing windows with a new CD. My current version of Windows on my hard drive is Windows Home Premium 64x. I want to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate 64x for the new computer setup. I've got a few questions as far this goes-
1. If I were to plug up my current hard drive to my new computer, boot up the windows installation CD, and install the new OS, would I lose my old data?
2. If I were not to lose my data, would all my current data be forced onto a different partition of the hard drive?
3. If I were not to lose my data, and step 2 is becomes true, is there a way to avoid keeping all my current data on a different partition of the hard drive?
4. If I were to lose my data, is there anything I can do to avoid losing it besides moving all of it to an external memory sources?
Thank you very much for your time!
