I have a old XP Home Upgrade version with a slip streamed service pack 2 on it, which originally was for a Gateway desktop back in 2002, that has been sold since then. Can I install that with it's fully legal product ID code on my newer 09 computer but onto a external sata hard drive enclosure type connected by eSATA if I provide the sata drivers during the install and then do a upgrade to service pack 3 ? Or will the real road block issue be when I need to activate that XP since newer hardware ?
