hey guys, does anyone know if XP will allow me to install it on the same PC, but with a different hard drive? i remember a long time ago everyone was complaining about changing PC parts and then XP not wanting to install because it thought it was a different machine?

thanks

It will always install. Where people had a problem was activations, it can fail to activate if its been installed too many times in a certain period or if the hardware has changed significantly over time. In those cases all you have to do is call MS and activate over the phone.
