Is this possible or a no-can-do? Will it boot? Will there be issues with ms Win XP S2 (which I am currently running)
If I can't put the current hard drive in the new PC, would it work if there were a hard drive with XP already on it in the new computer - would there be a way for me to move all my files and programs over to the new one?
Thank you very much for any help!!
If I could make a suggestion...
If you're building a new machine anyways, spend the extra few dollars and invest in another hard drive. They are so cheap these days it's well worth the $. If you have that second hard drive, you can easily use the Windows XP file and settings transfer wizard to move all your files. And you can use that backup drive to easily back up your data as well. Worth every penny IMO.
