use norton ghost and image the drive. create a partition the exact same sizr and then apply the image to it.

you can find ghost using well, shall we say, other methods than buying it.

I'd say it might be bootable, but chances are that you'd need to run a repair from a windows disk anyway to get things running proper.

what you do is just reimage it, and if you find anything wrong, then as svem said run xps built in repair feature, which should fix up any problems you might have.

I found a great freeware program that changed it over and even formatted the old drive. Every thing is running peachy!

Just to let you know for future reference Bob...you could have used your CD to install a clean load of Windows on his computer.... and used HIS code when it asks for it. That is perfectly legal. What you are paying for when you buy Windows...is mainly the license/code. As long as one code isnt on both systems....there is nothing wrong with it. It doesnt matter that you used the same CD.

Glad everything is working out "peachy".
