Get the answer Scotteq October 16, 2007 11:19:10 PM Ah - You have the Hard Drive in your posession which was taken from a Vista machine, and you want to plug it into your XP box and run it. I don't think M$$FT Licen$$ing will let you do that. Vista registers itself to the mobo. There might be a way to get around it, but I'm not aware of what that might be. What you might want to try is asking in the Vista area of http://www.msfn.org Here nearly everyone is "just" a user. Some of the guys there are pretty serious techs. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
