    Upgraded PC, GPT and Original Legacy HDD

    I've just upgraded my PC to Skylake platform and found out win 10 needed to install on the HDD with GPT.

    now, my secondary HDD's from my older storage are still to be connected.

    Is it safe to just plug them in and they'll be ok.

    What i'm thinking is they will be ok and it's just the boot options of the new primary disc that needs this? have i got this right?

    Yes, your MBR hard drives will work just fine for secondary storage.
