    I hope this is the appropriate Forum for this POST – if not , then apologies!

    I have a Primary 60 Gbte PATA drive on which XP Pro SP2 boots. There is also a second 200 Gbte SATA drive which is used for some Apps and also data.

    I want to swop the 60 Gbte Primary PATA drive for a new 500 Gbte SATA drive and have the present 200 Gbte SATA become the bootable drive , probably saving the replaced 60 Gbte PATA drive as an external drive.

    How do I organise this ?

    Would I first have to install XP Pro onto the present 200 Gbte SATA drive and make that one the bootable drive before I removed the 60 Gbte PATA drive ?

    If that is the correct procedure , how do I change the bootable drive over to the 200 Gbte SATA drive after installing XP onto that drive ?
