By h_topley ·
I have a laptop with XP Pro on a 10GB drive, I need to upgrade to a 40GB drive. What do I need to do? What about the issues with XP activation?

You should be able to Ghost or copy the 10GB drive onto the new 40GB.

Activation will only come into play if you re-install XP from scratch onto the 40GB drive, or try to use the 10GB drive in a different notebook.

There was a posting on one of the XP sites on how to back up the activation files.
