Linux Installation Experiment
I want to try out an experiment, but not knowing how it will turn out, I decided to post it here to see if anybody can give me any advice. What I want to do is instead of repartitioning my current HDD, I want switch the jumper on the HDD from master to slave and install a new HDD (I already have it) as the master, and install Linux onto it. What problems would I runn into if I did this?
Slave will not be bootable
I don't think the slave will be bootable if you do this. While you will be able to see the drive, I don't even know if you can use it. I might be wrong, but I am pretty sure that is what will happen.
