New HD for my Windows XP Pro

I'm planning on switching my 30 gig hard drive to a 120. The thing is I have installed Windows XP Pro and registered it on line with Microsoft. With switching the hard drives I would have to install XP again. The question is if I do more upgrades with the new XP would I have any problems with my new installed hard drive? Any help is appreciated.


Thanks and mahalo,

  1. What do you mean by problems? Are you asking about registration issues? XP will allow you to make a few hardware changes before it requires you to make a phone call. Even then, it's just a simple matter of calling the provided number, giving them a code generated by the reg program, and telling them that you're swapping hardware.
  2. Ditto! Its painless Scotty.

  3. you could just use tweak-xp from totalidea to back up your activation, and then use a program like norton ghost to copy all of yoru information over the the 120 gig so theres no reinstall. THen just use tweak-xp to replace your activation. I think it works like that i have never personally done it.
