will not work properly.
The proper method is to get a new copy (OEM or Retail, your choice) and install it on the new computer. Since you want a dual boot you would want to install XP first as otherwise you will need to edit the BCD.
All programs will also need to be freshly installed but data files are easily transferred.
I want to set up a new pc with Win7 and XP Pro in a dual boot setup. What I would love to do is migrate my existing harddrive from my current computer to the new one. I am aware of the changes of OEM XP software, however, if I was to do it could I use a new OEM install key to reauthorize the old (existing) installation? The one I want to move is an OEM as well, and I know that the existing key won't work. Or, do I need a "retail" version XP key? Or, is the best way to proceed to install a new OEM XP installation on the new computer and migrate all my applications?
Any advice along these lines would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
