External Hard Drives

  meater 14:33 25 Mar 2007

Please can anybody tell me if I use an USB External hard drive with Windows XP, will I have to Re-activate, I know I would if I put an Internal Drive in, but I don't know if I will have to using a USB Drive?
Appreciate any help.

I dont think you can have an external USB as a bootable XP Drive

There's no problem with using an external USB drive just for data storage with XP as I use one with my laptop. I have also installed some non-MS progrmas on it and these work fine.
