Windows xp pro

I was thinking of building my own new PC and was going to use the HDD on the old machine as a second HDD.

Can I use the copy of Windows XP Pro on the new machine (new everything) or will I have to purchase a new license?

As long as you only have the copy of XP on 1 PC then you should be ok, but you will probably have to re-activate it (or even speak to MS), as the PC spec would have changed considerably and XP would pick that up.
