Im getting confused so Ill start from the start.
I had xp running on 32 bit hardware. When i upgraded my motherboard and processor to dual core xp wont see the mouse or keyboard.
Then I took out the xp hdd and installed mint 6 on a new hdd and got it working fine.
The problem now is that i want to connect the xp hdd as a slave and copy my music and docs over to the mint hdd using the mint desktop but when i connect the xp hdd as a slave mint wont boot. I checked the boot priority in the bios and the mint hdd is first in the list. The message im getting is that a ntfs partition has been found - unable to mount.
Both hdds are ide.
