Tarting Up!

OK the computer had factory-installed XP. I have a recovery CD supplied with the machine. Now if I understand you correctly, if I remove the IDE HDD and install the SATA one, with new motherboard ("Carte m?re" in France!) and processor the recovery disc will not work? That would be boring, but I suppose as I have another XP Home disc (and have ordered XP-Pro for the newer computer) I could then install the XP-Home on the old one into its SATA drive?

Sorry to drone on and on about this and I do appreciate your help!
