HD transfered from donor PC with XP pre installed

Postby johnboy4195 » Mon Nov 07, 2011 8:34 am

I have a pc with windows vista. I have transfered a HD from a previous PC that has windows XP installed and the ne computer recognises the disk and will let me access via Vista. I would like to boot the OS from either HD. Is this possible using DualBootPro? If so what would be the process?

I don't believe you can get HD with XP on it to boot in new computer without re-installing XP and then none of programs on XP drive would work without re-install of them. DBP is a BCD store editor, so it would not help in your situation either. sorry
