With difficulty because the new PC will likely have different hardware components.Do you have the XP CD?If so, you can swap the disk across ok and then boot with the XP CD and do a repair installation. That may help...
sorry didnt mean to duplicate.will i lose all my data if i reformatt the drive
[quote]will i lose all my data if i reformatt the drive[/quote]Not if you back it up first.Give some details of the software and hardware you have installed and you will get some guidelines for backing it up.
my old computer is running windows 98.the drive i want to make my master is windows xp.is this at all possible or is it best just to reformatt the drive and lose all my data
What data? anything in my documents can be copied to a cd so it will not be lost; same goes for address book, favourites and so on.Do you have a cd writer? Or usb disk?
