    Hello.

    I am using Windows XP Home Edition & all is well. I have activated & registered the operating system.

    I recently resized the partitions of my hard drive using Partition
    Magic & upon reboot I had a message along the lines that I would need to reboot again for Windows XP to recognise the changes.

    I now want to add another hard drive & change my CD ROM drive for a DVD drive. I have heard that Windows XP only allows so many hardware changes before it locks out the user & I don't want to end up in this position.

    Can anyone shed any light on this matter? Is it safe for me to make the proposed changes & what do I do if I do get locked out?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Best wishes.
