Hi,
I am about to have delivered a new system with a ATA66 45gb hard drive connected to a Asus A7V motherboard. The operating system ( W98SE)is installed on this drive. In order to carry out NLE I am going to add a pyro and a second HDD. To save some money I intend to buy a smaller HDD (15gb) for the system files and other software and use the 45gb for video files.

My question is can I transfer the operating system and all the drivers etc to a newly installed drive without reinstalling Windows and all the drivers from scratch? I dont know whether this helps but the system I am getting is supplied with Norton Ghost which I think is a type of disk cloning software. Could this software be used in the process?

Regards Richard

Hi,

Norton (Symantec) Ghost will do the job for you, as will PQ Drive Image. It's straight-forward to use and quick.
