I am planning to change my stock 10 Gig HD for aq Hitatchi 5400 RPM 40 Gig unit with 8 MB cache- parts are already enroute from Germany- I live on a far away island near Africa...
I have zero experience with this upgrading stuff and have just purchased your repair manual hoping for clues- its downloading as I write.
Can anyone give me ideas, cautions, step by step procedure? Also planing to buy the new Panther and planing to boot the new HD with the new Panther CDrom. Will that work?
How can I transfer data from the old HD to the new one once Panther is installed?
Am I about to make a big mistake??
Thanks for info
