This is a problem. Your XP PRO (notice no SP) as the base OS has a 127GB limitation. Look closely at your XP PRO CD and if it's marked with SP1 or SP2 then clone that drive and move on. If your XP PRO CD is just "XP PRO" then you want to do the clean install.
I have a custom made PC,with an older 30 gig Maxtor HD,Win XP PRO,I have a new %00 gig Hitachi Deskstar I'd like to replace it with.I'd prefer to just clone the old drive,as opposed to new install of OS and copying all the other files.could anyone head me in the right direction,or discourage me if this isn't a goood idea.
Thank You In Advance S Markee
