- Switching hard drive? ? ?
June 30, 2008, 11:35 pm
rate this thread
among the last that came with Windows XP, which I prefer to Vista.
The hard drive is all right.
If I get a similar laptop in slightly later model, such as a dv6280us, and
put the old hard drive in the new one, will it work? That way, I could avoid
having to transfer all my files, and also avoid Vista.
And I'd have another hard drive as a backup when the running one fails.
Re: Switching hard drive? ? ?
will probably work. Otherwise, it gets iffy to an extent that depends
on how different things are. There are no guarantees, and no matter
what you MIGHT have to "reactivate" (XP), which you MIGHT not be able to
do. As I said ... there are no guarantees, you just have to try it.
