    you could put the hard drive from the old one into the new one, and just leave it like that, or copy from there to your new drive. doing the transferr internally will be the fastest way to transfer

    You just need to connect the two PCs with an ethernet crossover cable. Plug it in and away to go

    Yeah, that's it. You use it for transferring stuff from the internet ... so ..

    I just found a guide too. Looks fairly comprehensive.

    IMO it's just easier to put the hard drive into the new computer to copy the data. It's faster and easier to do than networking.

    But if you want to leave the computers connected then the corssover idea would be good.

    U mean that i should put the old pc hard drive into new pc......so it means that i will have 2 hard drives for the new PC....than i just copy the stuff i want from the old drive and send it to new one? Copy or past/ drag from old drive to new drive!!! Is that's wat u sayin?

    YA, THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING!!!



    edit: for the other way you need a crossover cable not jsut a regular cable.
    once it's connected run teh network setup wizard on each compute. or if one of them isn't windows XP then tell us and we can explain how to set up manually.

    Meh. I don't like taking the case off the PC if I don't have to. The XP network thing is pretty basic.

    However, in general I am scared of hardware so it follows I'd go with the crossover idea
