I have a friend who owns a hewlett packard desktop pc. It has an Intel Pentium 4- 3.2Ghz Cpu and 3 Gigs of RAM. Model # of Desktop not known at this time. So I don’t know what motherboard is in this machine.
It has Win XP Pro for its operating system with SP 3 and currently has installed a Western Digital 320 Gb EIDE Hdd. My friend purchased another Western Digital 500 Gb SATA Hdd and wants to know if he can run both Hdd’s in his machine together. I do know the Mobo is capable of utilizing both eide 40 pin connectors and SATA power and data cables.
If it is possible to run both Hdd’s together in the same machine then we would like to know if they should be run as master and slave or is there a better configuration for these two Hdd’s to be installed together.
Thank you very much for your time and I will post the exact names,model #s serial numbers etc. of the hard drives as soon as I get
But generally speaking ; can it be done?
