Can you get hold of an application like 'Ghost' or similar and just do a clone drive?
This has always worked for me, the only thing that will happen is XP will just find new hdd controler.
If you can't get hold of Ghost, I think there are some free ones out there but I have always used this app and it works a treat.
Hope this helps

have an old P3 [CPU 864MHz, RAM 1GB, XP Home Edition SP3] which i use for small projects.
problem: the old C drive only holds 15GB and is filling up fast with Microsoft Updates. So i installed an internal D hard drive with about 10 times as much capacity as the old drive, but i can't move Microsoft files from C to D
got in touch with MS who said i should do a clean re-install and reformat the new drive to C and the old drive to D.
problem: my drives are on master and slave jumpers.
how do i switch jumpers for the MS Updates to recognise and default to the new C drive on a 'live' pc? Last time i tried to set both jumpers to neutral for example i ended up with a black screen and a series of sinister bleeps :-o
