Currently my XP is on a 10 gig hd. I have a 30gig I would like to be my boot drive. It(the 30gig) is fat32. How do I migrate my XP from the 10gig to the 30 gig without have to reinstall all my softwares. Is it possible to do this. Currently my 10gig is the primary master and the 30 gig is the secondary slave. Mycd burner is the secondary master.

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated!

The easiest way is with drive image ( www.powerquest.com ) or with Norton Ghost.

You put the new hard drive in a slave, image the old one to the new one, take the 10 gig out, set the 30 gig to master and boot.

Your hard drive might (should) have come with software just for this. Probably called a setup disk or something like that.

Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestions. I've completed the task. My boot drive is my new 30gig. Windoze Xp has been cleanly installed.
I'm now in the process of reinstalling my softwares.

Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!
