There was a aituation I remember with one 4 Gigabyte and one 17 Gigabyte. Here is what I did:
Removed one 4 GB Hard Drive
Installed one 17 GB Hard Drive
Went into BIOS, had to see if specs were entered appropriately, and if not, had to enter specs.
Went to install software by partitioning as necessary.
I am unclear as to what else would be involved, but I had also had to note the parameters like the heads or cylinders or sectors or whatever on my computer's Hard Drive so I could enter them correct. Also, there has to be a master designation in this case, so be sure to knowwhich is master and which is slave or whatever is supposed to go on.
Please contact me if you need help or if this goes wrong, because I am only describing a possible situation with one hard drive replaced by one other hard drive.
