If I upgrade the HD from 6GB to say 40GB can I take a 6GB HD Acronis image, replace it with the 40GB HD, format etc, then load the 6GB Acronis Image onto the new 40GB HD, or must I do a complete new install of W98SE onto this 40GB HD? Thanks David

Yes, would be the short answer.

It depends is a truer answer.

1 - will the bios need to be flashed to accept the 40GB?

2 - are there any special boot sectors on the current disk that you will need? Some PCs and laptops, have special instructions written into the hdd.

3 - does the manufacturer give any guidelines?
