Yeah.
I have an old computer with Windows XP and I don't use it because it's either just slow or has a LOT of viruses (I'm sure it's the latter).

What I want to do is take the OS (Windows XP) and put it on a disc or USB or something and be able to install it on my Laptop because I really like XP (as well as Windows 7 (dual boot)).

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Also I wasn't sure where to post this. ^_^

Or as an alternative, is there any way I can make the old PC faster without an uninstall or anything like that? Maybe put an antivirus on the computer and run it? I think Disk Cleanup will help a lot. I'll try that.
Let you know how it turns out lol

Ok, I have a whole new problem..... The old computer won't even turn on! It worked fine in about June/July.
I connected everything back up and it wouldn't turn on, after getting quite annoyed and banging it a few times I gave up. Any suggestions?

Sorry for all of my problems but I need help with this. :)
I think I can provide you with a photo of the wires connected to the tower thing to check if I've connected it right but to be honest, I haven't actually used an actual PC for a few years (except for June/July but it was already set up at that point) so I have been using Laptops for a few years.
