New HDD - Possible activation issues with WinXP?

  Alan2 20:35 29 Jul 2003

With the aid of Drive Image I am about to copy the contents of what may be a failing HDD to a new one.

When I've altered the jumper setting to reverse the status of the drives and boot up the new one will I have problems with WinXP and OfficeXP which have been activated on the old C drive?

Only way to know is to try.

But as its only one HW change do not worry.

Rights guys - thanks for the responses, I've been reading the MS blurb referenced by Powerless and it confirms all your views that there'll be no problems. Right?

I'll do it all tomorrow.

Thanks again,
