Got some decent advice last time, and want to ask another question. I have a new machine with XP. My old Dell won't boot up except in safe mode. Is there any way to get the data from the old machine?
Exodus said:ya, just install the other hard drive into your new machine and transfer what ever stuff you needed over.
this is your best bet. Make sure before you connect the drive to have the newest virus software on the new mach. Dont even bother with knopix or any thing of that sort as its a totally differnt system you will need to figgure out when simply slaving the drive to the new box and copying and pasting what you want will work and is sooo much simpler.Twinsen said:Yeah, just install the HD as a slave drive and copy everything you need.
