Moving a HD to another computer


D

Dylan Mattina

I am trying to upgrade by computer and only want to move
my existing HD with XP PRO on it to a new box. I got it
all loaded up and powered on and the Windows won't run
even in Safe Mode. Any ideas?

I really hope that putting a HD into a new box isnt as
much of a hassle as I am beginning to suspect it is.
Shouldnt XP PRO sense the change and identify my new
hardware and set it up automatically???

Thanks for any advice you all can give.

Dylan,

please have a look at http://www.michna.com/kb/WxMove.htm. It's
a list of things to watch out for when you move an entire
installation.
