hi so basically im a bit of a noob when it comes to this sort of thing but here goes
i have a old laptop running vista that has died i think a motherboard issue but im not really bothered as i have a new laptop.
and i have a pretty old dell optiplex small form factor pc with like 512mb of ram running xp.
so what i would like to do is use the OS from the laptop on the dell.
Also, I recommend against running Vista on a system that has 512MB of RAM. Vista should be given at least 1GB to work properly and I recommend at least 2GB for it to work properly without performance issues from a lack of RAM capacity.
