I may actually be insane.

Theoretically speaking it would be possible, but as soon as you boot up the machine you copied it onto, you're going to need to install new drivers for all the "new" hardware which windows finds. Then you're going to have to activate it again.

You're better off just installing XP onto the new machine from scratch.

I wish I could but the laptop in question has no cd drive as it was removable and I have lost it.

Never tried coping to another machine. I've cloned to another hard drive and done the regular backup stuff and copied to CDR. I'm sure if the hardware were different then you would run into problems as mentioned.

It's possible, but you will need to run SYSPREP on Windows XP before copying it to the other computer. Otherwise, you will not be able to activate it on the new machine (Identical SIDS).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
