1) Do sector by sector backup using the latest acronis. Perform the backup using the CD rather than the backup from within the OS. Click Verify the image after the backup's completed
2) Restore the backup onto the new disc with validation of the backup option ticked. Make sure you restore the backup as is with the same partition sizes
3) If Windows doesn't load properly, repair it using Windows XP SP3 installation disc. That will repair the system files.
