Oct 12, 2010, 2:07 PM
I have a new Dell Inspiron 580 running windows Home Premium 7 64 bit. Can I install the "C" drive from my old Dell 8250 running XP and pick the system I want to use by changing boot order??

No. OEM systems are not transferable and are locked in to the pc they were installed on.
It wouldn't work anyway due to the differing hardware.
