Help with new HD

Recommended Posts

lynchknot    0

Hello, I installed a new, larger, WD HD and used drive image to make a copy of C. These are my issues. Please help. Thanks

My desktop is H but the program files is C so everything is all mixed up. I changed the label of each drive but it now says DriveC(H) How do I change H to C (not just the label) - I only changed the jumpers - do I really need to swap cable ends? **edit -I will change it

**edit - I switched cable ends and rebooted and got boot error. I put cables back - boot ok.

YAHOOOOOOOO! -

1. In Disk Management - format new HD and DO NOT ASSIGN DRIVE LETTER

2. In Drive Image - Copy drive and DO NOT ASSIGN DRIVE LETTER

3. Unplug old drive and change jumper to master in new drive

4. Boot - will automatically assign to Drive C

5. Done
