I'm concidering upgrading the following elements of my pc - motherboard, processor, memory. I'm currently running Xp pro os, on a samsung 160g sp1614. Will this HD just unplug and replug and work on the new system, or will i have to reformat. Current system = motherboard asus A7v333, processor athlon xp2000. New upgrades = MSI 7025 K8n NEO2 Platinum 939, processor athlon 64 3500+ 939
Many Thanks

and reinstall the XP when you have fitted you new bits. Mainly because of drivers and a spring clean what could be hidden in your reg files will be vamped away.

So perosnally I would reinstall you XP clean.

I would go for a reinstall myself as windows installs certain components dependant on what hardware you have
