I have in home my PC Windows XP Pro 64 bit which is the OEM version of the XP. Now I got another PC in the Office where I need to use the office provided XP Pro 64 bit Volume License version.

Is there a way to migrate? or I want to copy all my home PC's data that includes the Applications installed to my Office PC.

How to do/

You might be able to do that ... With an Image ..
BUT .. You'll need a new M$ Product Key licensed to the new Computer .. And change the Product key of the install.
And finding the correct drivers might be a problem.

Since source OS is OEM, after copying will VLM key will work?

NO .. The OEM OS key is only licensed to the computer it was originally installed in and cannot be moved.
The Office VLM key should work.
