Hi !

If the old disk is OK strap it as SLAVE and connect it to the same bus cable that goes to the new disk. The new disk must be strapped as MASTER.

Start your PC and have a look in BIOS setup that BIOS has recognized the old disk.Exit BIOS setup, continue BOOT and copy all your favorite files. NOT OS FILES.
