By virtue of problems I won't elaborate on,
I think my new drive in my new computer
is now just a paper weight.

I had just installed XP Home, and hadn't
even hooked up to the net yet so it isn't
registered.

Will I have a problem installing that same
XP in a new replacement drive? (due to
registration etc) I've got another drive
in that same computer I could reinstall
everything on till I can get a replacement
for the one I was using for the C drive
with all the apps - but would eventually
like to have XP & all other apps on a
separate physical drive from the remaining
functional drive in the computer now.

If so, there must be some way to do that?
(I know how to physicall transfer the files,
I'm talking about registration etc)

Thanks!
