    I loaded the Vista first and then added the old hd via a dual plug 80
    wire ide ribbon. I copied almost all the data to the new hd but vista
    has so many security "upgrades" there were a few that i just couldn't
    extract. I removed the old hd and put it back in the old pc and i'm
    having a new mobo installed as a back up pc. Lesson learned: Back up
    all important files to separate a storage drive (external, thumb
    drive, cd rom, etc.) and put pictures and programs in a FILE not in my
    documents folders.
    I really hate vista so far but it might just be that i'm running on
    little sleep and i'm not familiar with all the bells and whistles.
    Time will tell.
    Thanks again to all who responsed.
