Hi, I'm trying to install a second hard drive on a Windows XP based system. It's an already formatted and used hard drive from from my XP based cpu. I am trying to install it on my friends cpu because it has my cheat sheets for a draft at 5pm pst and I do not have the rest of my cpu here with me on vacation.
I have moved the connector in the back to the "slave" position for the new hard drive and tried different configurations for the already installed one, but cannot get it to work. The closest I can get has the new install as a slave and it will show up on the installed drive, but I cannot access the files. It says it's locked.
Conversely, when I select the new hard drive as the master and the old as slave it wants me to enter a product code, which I do not have (it's taped to my cpu back at home). Can anyone help?
