OK the new harddrive is in the work system. All the files have been copied to the new HD. However after I took the old hard drive out it will not boot. OS not found is the message I get. How do I assign the new drive as my C drive in windows? The BIOS does'nt give me an option to do this. Its a Compaq system.
Did you just copy the files over one folder at a time? If so, that's your problem. Data is differnet than OS when it comes to moving. The Windows folder will not make a system boot, it needs a bunch of other files. Did you use Ghost? I'll find a link to a freebie copy and post it in a few (if I can find a free one).
