Can you put a windows 98 hard drive in a XP computer and use it as a second drive?
Yes you can. You can use is as a slave drive. There's nothing to worry if you have windows 98 installed on the HD.
The hard drive stores the Operating System. Like for example : Windows XP or Windows Vista or even Windows 7 without the hard drive your computer will not turn on.
If you have music on the computer, it is already on the hard drive, everything that is on your windows operation system is on the hard drive.
It's called dule boot, you want to partition your hard drive in half, or how ever big you want them to be then you install your first windows on the first part of your hard drive, then you do the same thing but install it to the second hard drive.
The type of hard drive depends on the computer, not the operating system.
When you buy a new Windows XP computer, in what unit is the size of a typical hard drive measured?

No a second hard drive is only optional if you want more storage space then you can buy one and set it as the slave hard drive The Master hard drive is what has the OS on it if you have no clue what a OS is I will tell you. The OS is the Operating System the computer is running for ex. Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux and many others.
As long as they use the same data connector, yes. However, you will likely not be able to use the hard drive, as Windows XP will not usually work when transferred to another computer, and Windows Me cannot read the NTFS file system. Reinstalling Windows XP or formatting the hard drive in Windows Me will resolve these respective issues.
Yes, you can remove a hard drive from an older computer, place it in a new computer, and format it. Simply formatting it will leave it with no operating system, and thus useless in the Windows 98 computer. Installing Windows 98 to the drive from in your new computer may be difficult if your computer exceeds 512 MB of RAM, or if you use a SATA CD/DVD drive. Installing Windows XP to the drive might… Read More
How do you get data off hard drive onto new computer with the former computer being Windows 98 and the New is Windows 7?
you can connect both computer through networking.. you can use pen drive..
It depends on what type of computer you have, but generally, yes. If you have a desktop computer and it has a single hard drive, then more than likely it has a second slot inside where you can add a second hard drive. There will already be an IDE cable inside that allows you to hook the second hard drive up to your computer. If you have a laptop, then you probably can't add a… Read More

If you are talking about putting windows on your computer again you will need to backup your old documents (CD/DVD/External hard drive). If you have more than one partition on your computer put all the documents you want to keep onto the second one. Under "My Computer" you may see c:\ and another hard drive possibly d:\. The d:\ will not be affected when installing windows again. The c:\ will be completed wiped.
Windows XP does not "have" a hard drive. The hard drive is a part of the computer, not Windows XP. Windows XP supports only IDE drives natively, although OEMs can also include drivers to support SATA drives.
my computer--->manage->computer management ---->select drive drive and right click delete partition
If the computer has a windows operating system and the hard disk has more than one partition, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show each partition as a local drive. For instance, if you have two partitions, My Computer or Windows Explorer will show partition #1 as Local drive c:\, and partition #2 as local drive d:\, and will bump the CD or DVD drive to the next available letter, in this case e:\, and… Read More

What does the computer hard drive do?
I'm not quite sure what you mean, so I'll give you both answers: "How do you use a hard drive for Mac and Windows on the same machine?" On a mac, insert a Windows install CD or DVD, and the computer will ask you if you want to set up windows to run alongside mac. In the process you will partition the hard drive, so you will kind of have a windows hard drive, and… Read More

I have two hard disks in my computer and I want to clean install Windows 7 64-bit If I install it on one of my hard disks am I going to lose data from another one?
No, you are not. Just make sure that you format the right drive. I would recommend to disconnect the second drive while you are performing installation. When you finish connect the second drive back.
There are only three reasons that I know of. The first is: the hard-drive has to much memory for the computer to handle. The second is: The hard-drive and/or your computer in infected with a virus. The third is: The hard-drive is fairly new, while the computer is fairly old. I hope these helped!
If you are using Windows, go to 'My Computer', right click your hard drive, click Properties and you will be shown the information for your hard drive (Note that this will tell you how much in gigabytes (gb). 1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte).
You can plug it into the other computer or install a virtual windows program onto both computers.

If you are trying to install Windows XP on a computer with a CD / DVD drive but you do not have a Windows CD, you can make a "ghost" copy of your hard drive. This "ghost" can be used to copy Windows back to a hard drive bit by bit. You should have a fresh / working copy of Windows running first to make a ghost. If you have a CD but no disc… Read More
The hard drive saves all of the computers information, along with keeping the operating system (i.e. Windows). Whenever you start any program installed on your computer, it has to come from the hard drive, along with your music files, and any other saved documents.
The hard drive is the amount of memory that your computer has.
Decide what type of hard drive or memory to add.

Or you can enable the… Read More
There are at least two options: first one is the operating system is broken; second one is your hard drive has bad sectors. Both cases you need to run full hard drive diagnostics, including the hard drive surface test (bad sector repair).
What could be the problem if a computer can't recognize a second hard drive after it's verified that the cables are properly connected and the jumper settings are correct?
BIOS not configured to detect a second hard drive
If your computer came with 2 hard drives, as mine did, they are probably drive C, which is your main hard disk, and drive D, which you can access through your computer and completely back up your computer on it. I use mine for the windows paging file, that frees up drive c and makes my computer faster. My Dell came with 2- 500 GB hard drives and was worth every penny.
a disk drive is a hard drive on your computer for memory storage. all computers have them, its where my documents is and all your files, although you can buy a second or third or fourth disk drive. its just the way a computer reads a memory card or hard drive
hard drive on the computer, it does the programming
There is no such thing as a "Mac" or a "Windows" hard drive. From a technological standpoint the hard drives found in Macintosh computers and those found in computer running Windows are identical. Any hard drive with the corresponding interface (SATA, IDE in older Macs, and most SCSI drives in really old Macs) can be used in either computer. The partition table and file system used by each operating system is generally not readable by… Read More
In a desktop computer, open the case. Connect an IDE cable to the computer, and connect the other end of it to the second hard drive. The connection only works one way. As soon as you turn the computer on, if both hard drives don't sound like they are working, then you make a mistake with the connection, and you basically have to flip the cable end 180 degrees and plug it back in. Now… Read More
