Two HDDs, Both with OSs on Them
My problem is that my current PC (listed in my specs) is broken, and I can't seem to find the issue, so I ordered brand new parts for a whole new build. But, I had some important documents and family photos on that HDD, which has Windows Vista 64-bit OEM installed on it (so I can't connect it to my new rig). So I was wondering if I could instal Windows 7 on my new HDD, plug in the old one, boot from the Windows 7 one, then transfer files from the old one (which still has Win Vista installed)? Thanks a lot!
