transfer HDD from non bootable XP to good Vista
I have two computers; one with Home XP that will not boot. Other is Vista and
works fine. The XP machnine has two hard drives and I would like to put the
one containing Windows into the Vista machnine so I can copy everthing except
Windows XP to the Vista machines HDD. Would I encounter any problems with
that? Or perhaps there is a way to leave the drive in place and just hook a
cable from the dead machine to the healthy one? They are only three feet
apart. The XP machine uses IDE cables. Have never had the Vista apart, so
don't know what it uses.
Thanks for any advice about keeping my data.
