so my computer parts are on there way via ups. expecting them anytime now. heres my issue. i have a 750 gig SATA HD coming in my parts to my new rig. i have a WD 160 gig IDE with windows and all my brothers data which he wants off it. and i have another 80 gig IDE HD that i think just has data on it that needs to come off it. his rig doesnt work anymore so i was gonna throw it in mine to get the data off.
my question is, can i set up the SATA drive, and the two IDE drives as Primary and Secondary or am i gonna have to boot up in SAFE MODE with the 160gig IDE and get the data off with an external.
and after all this is said and done with, is it possible to boot off the 750gig SATA drive and use the 160 and 80 as storage?
thanks for the advice in advance.
