    i have a dell c521 which has recently conked out. system was using Windows XP.i used Drive Snapshot to back up all data but have replaced the C521 with a Dell Studio XPS 8100 which runs Windows 7. can i install the hard drive from the 521 into Studio 8100 to recover the data and if so how do i do this? i believe that the fault on the 521 was motherboard related and the hard drive as far as i know is intact.
