    Hi,
    My computer came pre-installed with windows xp, so I didnt recieve a disk with xp on it. I am buying a new hard drive and want to install xp on it. Is there anyway to transfer xp from my old hard drive to my new one without buying a new copy of xp, and if there is, will I still be able to connect to windows update?

    Thanks

    You could use the Files and Setting Transfer Wizard in Windows OR, my apps of choice would be Ghost or Acronis

    Norton-Ghost Or Acronis

    Depending on the brand of your pc, you may be able to request an installation cd from the manufacturer . . Dell and HP will provide them if asked.

    Hard drive manufacturers generally offer disk cloning software you can download from their websites (Maxblast...etc...).
    Download the file, create the floppy, install the hard drive, run the cloning software, then remove or re-format the old disk as required.

    Some would recommend Acronis TrueImage, but it isn't entirely necessary for the task, although Acronis is a great cloning/imaging/back-up solution.

    Thanks guys,

    I'll look into Maxblast and Acronis. My PC was made by Tiny so I cant get an installation cd.
    Lance1 does the files and settings transfer wizard actually transfer the whole operating system?
