Moving an existing XP install and programs to a new computer
by amajamar - 9/22/10 3:05 PM
I want to set up a new pc with Win7 and XP Pro in a dual boot setup. What I would love to do is migrate my existing harddrive from my current computer to the new one. I am aware of the changes of OEM XP software, however, if I was to do it could I use a new OEM install key to reauthorize the old (existing) installation? The one I want to move is an OEM as well, and I know that the existing key won't work. Or, do I need a "retail" version XP key? Or, is the best way to proceed to install a new OEM XP installation on the new computer and migrate all my applications?
Any advice along these lines would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
