This morning I was booting up my laptop and I got a blue screen of death that gave an error about the registery. I contacted dell and they are sending me a new harddrive for my laptop. I was wondering if i got an Laptop to IDE hard drive adapter, if i could use my desktop to to retrieve the files from the harddrive. I was thinking since the hard drive would be acting as a slave that I might beable to save my files. Will this work?
