    I have an old 10 gig drive that I want to install in an old machine that my kids use. Problem is, it has an 8 gig that is split into 2 gig partitions,--C, D, E, and F. Installing the 10 gig as a slave, causes the machine to boot to the desktop, and no further. The bios is seeing the 10 gig drive, but it is getting installed as drive letter D. Which in turn is bumping the last three partitions on the original drive up a letter. Which of course is causing problems.
    Any solution besides formatting the original? Which I would really prefer not to do, but if I have to, then so be it! :)
