I had XP Pro on an old computer that needed upgrading, so I removed the hdd that had xp on it, moved it to a more upgraded computer, and i was locked out of the drive with a blue error screen, yet when i put it back in the old machine, it worked fine. It seems to me that XP is stubborn about hardware changes, mabey Im wrong, but is there a way to make the old drive work on the newer computer without having to contending with the tedious task of file transfer from the old drive to a new blank drive?


Damn I hope that all made sense.....
