Hello,my old pIII with a 120 gb hd and widows xp finally died so i moved the hd to a newer P4 box. XP did not recognize its new environs so I reinstalled. I was able to get XP working, but it didn't recognize a lot of hardware (video, nic, etc) and because of the changes, Window said I had to recertify my copy of Windows in three days. I missed the deadline and had to create a new install of xp on the same hard drive. I have now downloaded all the drivers for my new hardware and xp is happy, but I have lost all my old user profiles and software. Can I restore the old software and profiles in the new install? the data is still on the same hard drive.

The data is still exist, but other required information (like registry keys) isn't.
