New HardDisk

My HD broke down, so as a temporary measure I installed XP on an ancient 4GB UDMA33 drive. Have just bought a new disk, and am wondering if its possible to just copy everything from the old one (including XP), and just have the new one work straight away? The old one will be removed.


If you have some disk image software, like Norton Ghost, then yes.

A lot of new disks come with some software like that.

Even if you can't, you can reinstall XP on the new drive and call Microsoft up and they will help you activate it, as long as your copy is legit.

its legit. Cool,thanks!
