    Ill make this short and simple hoplefully. I have a couple of questions. I just installed windows xp on older system[5 yrs], C drive is 4 gb. d drive is 40 gb.
    1. what programs are safe to move to d: drive?? So xp works properly
    2. Tried updating older bios to work with windows xp, had to shut off aspi compliant at startup. {asus me-99vm motherboard]Updating did not work from manufacturers web site.Any way to update bios compliancy.
    3. ever since i installed xp.,after it tells me ok to shut off system, it wont restart on power up. I have to keep turning circuit board off and on to start.

    You cannot safely "move" any programs.

    You can however uninstall and reinstall the programs, selecting the Custom Install and have them install to the other drive. Most programs will not run if you just "move" them, as the registry then has no idea where the files are.
