Panel PC CF Card upgrade problem

  Ste Worrall 22:10 04 Feb 2019

I have a WINDOWS XP Panel PC which boots and operates using a 1GB Industrial Grade CF Card, its only for very basic tasks so is ideal. Id like to upograde it using a spare 4GB CF Commercial Card I have found. Having very limited knowledge I nievily assumed I could simply COPY the existing cards contents onto the new card, however the Panel PC simply wont boot up, im assuming becasue the new CF card isnt a bootable one. MY QUESTION can I upgrade the existing industrial grade CF card with the new commercial grade one, and if so how ?

Thanks for the advice, the problem is, I dont have the Windows install disc. This Panel PC was just one of 20 being scrapped, even though its never been out of its box.
