nope. only if you restored it to the exact same location would it work correctly.

This is due to registry entries that identify which partition the OS is on.

If you want multiple XPs installed do so from the same cd to different partitions in the same system.

You either need to own it in the first place or buy it. Your post is confusing... If you use a programme like Macrium you can make a copy of your OS which will copy to another drive and this can be stored on a CD/DVD depending on the size.

The normal way to create backup copies of your Windows version involves using the original disc that was deployed to install Windows on the machine in the first place to make the copies.

You can clone an image of your machine & deploy the same image on several machines successfully, insofar as, these machine are identical or similar component-wise. Using the cloned image on just any machine will result in BSODs or related fatal errors, as well as, activation issues due to the different hardware hashes.

Also cloning not only means having identical systems, but a different license key for each one.
