My 500gb laptop HDD is split into 2 partitions 250gb each (c: and d: but they are the same hard drive), I want to take it out and put it into my pc. Now when i put it in, will i see 2 partitions or will the laptop files in D: get merged into C: automatically and i only get one partition?

My pc currently have C: and D: active, i want it to show up as 2 partitions which will be E: and F:.

Also is it possible to just put it in and boot the laptops OS on the pc? or should i disconnect my current 2 hard drives before doing that?

Yeah so i put it into the pc and you were right it still had 2 partitions, tried booting into its OS but got blue screen.

Anyways i completely cleaned the drive on the laptop and now using it as a new HDD to store movies and things i never open on my PC and its only about 40mb slower read/write speed compared to my normal HDD so im happy :)

thanks
