Hi. My brother is pulling his hair out and needs some serious help.
He bought a new SSD and wants to install as master. He wants to make is old HDD (containing data) a slave. His goal is to leisurely transfer files from the HDD slave to the SSD. The HDD has Windows XP operating system, Windows 7 on the new SSD. The BIOS is mislabeling the old drive and his options are greyed out so he is unable to change them. We have been all over the internet looking for solutions, but it seems that most are installing blank masters and slaves. We have also looked at disk management in Windows, again, the selections he needs to select are also greyed out.
If this is not enough information let me know what I need to help you answer this thread. I would give you some now, but it seems that he has totally messed up his computer and it is not booting properly.
