If I use the HDD of an existing PC (or a clone thereof) in a new PC (as the boot drive), what are all of the steps to consider? I am aware of the following:
-- Need to install drivers for the specific hardware of the new PC
-- Need to re-activate Windows (presumably with a new key) - it would be XP Pro SP3 in this particular case.
-- Is it worth uninstalling specific drivers (e.g. graphics, sound) whilst in old system before transferring to new?
-- Should one do a Repair Install of Windows on the new PC or not? I read somewhere that this should be done for the sake of the drivers, but I would expect this to get sorted automatically (if Windows is aware of the drivers) or by manually installing the drivers (e.g. as downloaded from the mobo manufacturers site).
