Answers :

Hard drives have jumper settings on them on the back if you can see the original hard drive pull it out by removing screws look at the rear of the drive the jumper settings for the drives are called master, slave, and cable select. If your hard drive is on a cable by itself it is more then likely set as cable select, if it has a hard drive and cd rom etc on one cable the hard drive will be set to master and cd set to slave if you have more then one hard drive on one cable the new one will be master load windows on the drive then you may set the old drive to slave hook it to the cable and restart you could save some of your things on old drive by pulling them to the new drive. This is really complicated for someone who has not done it before but if you follow the rules above you will be successful. If this helps leave feedback if it does'nt you want to consider taking your machine to a proffesional it is a ten minute job to them. Thanks have a nice day hope this helps if not repost and we will help you.
