|Well, one can transfer maybe the OS and programs. It would depend on how you own the xp, and what drivers you can acquire for the new system. If you have a real xp disk it would be simple enough to install it. Then make a ntbackup on the old system with system state and apply it to the new computer. It should work but not always. Most likely you would need to slipstream in sp's and drivers. |
I might consider making a virtual machine out of the old computer and run it within Vista.
Could take the old drive out and put in in the new one and fix the boot loader bcdedit. Might work with bios selection too and would need at least a repair. One tends to install all the drivers and service packs before they take out the drive to have drivers there at boot.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
