Help on FSX install

Recommended Posts

"Help/advice" Guys and gals. I am a teacher with very limited "playtime"(flight time) during the school year. Now that I have a few months to do some serious flying again I have some question about installing FSX. Several months ago I installed a new HDD and placed the old HDD in an external enclosure. The old HDD has my complete FS9 files on it. I did not copy or reinstall FS9 on the new drive. What are your suggestions for installing FSX:1. "Ghost" or backup the FS9 and place on the new drive and then install FSX.2. Install FS9 fresh, reinstall all of the add-ons and then installFSX.3. Install FSX and reinstall all of the add-ons (those compatable of course).Option 3 seems most logical but you all have the most experience with how FSX is functioning with or without FS9 installed. Many thanks for your advice in advance.Gary @ RIC

Posting the EXACT same topic twice is not according to forum etiquette, specially when someone already answered the question well enough.http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...04046&mode=fullWell, anyway, if you only want to fly FSX there is no need whatsoever to install FS9. In that case installing FS9 is just as usefull as installing Tomb Raider, Need for speed Carbon or Word. ;)
