configuring new pc

By kiss65xx ·
I have a new Packard Bell 6810 pc.
it has 2 HDs of 300gig each and ports for two more SATA HDs
I want to....

1. Add 2 hard drives, c and d, both 30 gigs, for the os and progs.

2. configure c with os and progs and ghost onto d, so if any thing goes wrong with c i can simply reboot into the second installation.

The larger drives will be for data storage.

Also, from my old computer, I want to

1. either transfer about 20 gigs worth of data or preferably install this IDE drive (80gig) into the new machine.

Any experts on drives and ghosts?

you are askiing how to clone your c

by sgt_shultz In reply to configuring new pc

if it were me, i'd use the utilites from the hard drive mfg. to clone the drive. as you know you can only have one active boot partition at a time. so with your method you'd have to clone the drive then safest is to disconnect it until you need it. is that what you wanted to know?
