I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my desktop. I had a 120 GB parallel hard drive running on it. I bought a new WD 500 GB serial hard drive.
First the computer would not recognize the new hard drive and would not format nothing. Could not find a program that would clone the 120 GB hard drive to the 500 GB hard drive. Could not get the 500 GB hard drive to take Windows 7 Ultimate. Finally, disconnected 120 GB hard drive and was able to get the 500 GB hard drive to take Windows XP Pro 64-bit.
The 500 GB hard drive was OPM and came with nothing. What a mess, how do straighten this out?
