http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, it's been a while since I sat down and actually messed with the inner workings of my Feisty desktop. Yes, I'm still running feisty, got compiz up and working well with my ATI card and decided that it was a good point to stop until I pick up a new box. My question, I just picked up another Dell Dimension desktop off my dad who upgraded there system a few months ago. I'm wanting to take the hard drive from his (loaded with Win XP) and add it to my Ubuntu box for a total of 2 drives. I played around with a dual boot of Ubuntu and XP on the same drive a while back but found that I didn't need XP taking up the additional space on my measly 60GB drive, just didn't use it enough. In that setup, I used a grub loader to boot into the Ubuntu or XP partitions on the drive. Would I be doing the same thing here? I haven't even tried cracking into it on my own yet, want to make sure I'm not getting in over my head. Anyway, thanks in advance for any help. And I'm sorry if this is the incorrect place for this post. Assumed it would be here as I'm adding a second drive to my box. (Hardware)
