Hi..first, am i right in thinking that every bit of information the PC needs is on the hard drive?

so the question is, On my daughters PC, which has win95, if i was to take out my spare drive, win98se, which has everything on it, OS plus all the programmes, and put it into her PC, would it work?

thanks

Yes and no. The hard drive also has all the drivers and would be set up for your hardware configuration. If windows did load then you'd need to install all the drivers for the hardware on her PC.

Alternatively it might not work at all..
