Work is upgrading their PC's so the old rig I work on is now surplus to requirements and the boss says I can take it home (for overtime / flexible working hours etc).
Our nine year old home PC is constantly BSOD crashing, and is probably not long for this world. Is it possible to install my old home PC hard drive into work PC?
I'm not so much thinking of the extra storage, more that the existing programs & files on the old HDD would be a hassle to transfer over. I mean things like thousands of mp3s, MS money files, MS Outlook email configuration, any any programs that we'd have to pay for again to transfer to new PC HDD.
How compatible are two different hard disk drives, when home one runs XP home & work one runs XP pro?
Is transferring the HDD from the old PC into the new PC likely to migrate my BSOD problems too? I think the BSOD problems are memory related, this shouldn't effect the new PC if using new PC's memory, right?
Are there any other pros & cons of a duel HDD setup I need to be aware of?
Specs of work PC:
MS windows XP pro ver.2002 service pack 2
Dell dimension DM061 Intel core 2 CPU
4300 @ 1.80GHz
1.79GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM
Specs of home PC: TBA
Appreciate any help & ideas!
