Why not add it to your system and just transfer your files across.
That way there's no need to clone/reactivate.

Hi ashdav, you said "Why not add it to your system and just transfer your files across" but surely to transfer files across you will need an operating system alredy installed which will prompt you to reactivate the OS am I right?

Hi rossgolf, with acronis true image is it straight forward?

I assumed you already had a working system with XP installed on C drive.
If you add another drive and format it, you can use it to store all your data files and keep the original C drive as is.
