I am looking at buying one of those new Western Digital 80G 8MB Cache hard drives and would like to know about copying Win98 SE Upgrade to it first.
Is it possible to plug this 80G into my pc as a 2nd hard drive and then copy Win98 SE Upgrade from the CD direct to that hard drive, then after I do that take my 40G out and set the 80G as the main hard drive and put my boot disk in and go through the usual things then execute the copied win98se upgrade that I first copied to that 80G hard drive?
Would Windows work if I done something like that?
Or would I have to copy the full version windows to the 80G for it to work?
By getting the 80G, I am trying to have windows setup on the hard drive so I don't have to ever worry about inserting the cd everytime I add a new piece of hardware.
I know it can be done by copying the cd to the hard drive after installing the 80G as my main drive, but I would like to copy it before I make it my main hard drive.
Hope you understand what I mean.
I also suppose I have to buy a good motherboard that would support this type of hard drive to get the best benefits out of it.
Are these new hard drives much faster then a 7200rpm? I suppose it would depend on what MB you also have!
Thanks in advance.
