I just purchased and am trying to figure out the best practice.
My end goal is my existing XP install onto a new computer on one hard drive, then two installs of win 7 pro64 bit on a second hard drive.
the plan is to
1. make a bootable xp image from the old computer and put the new drive into the new computer.
2. install second hard drive and reinstall Win 7 from scratch if necessary. Then if I make it that far, install a second install of window 7 on same second drive.
I have the OEM disks for both XP and Win 7.
A new install of XP is not an option because of one program that requires online activation from a company that has since gone out of business - the reason I am doing this.
The best approach would be greatly appreciated.
What are the best practices/guides
