I apologize if this is the wrong location for this question, I believe these sorts of questions are applicable to broader IT professionals.
My old Dell 8600 laptop with Windows XP OEM is on its last legs and I need to purchase a new laptop and copy the existing Windows XP image directly over to it. I cannot reinstall windows from scratch.
- Will my XP install work on a completely different hardware configuration without windows genuine notifications coming up?
- How do you take an image of a windows install from one hardware configuration to a completely different hardware configuration without having serious driver issues?
Anything else that might be relevant to doing this would be appreciated. Thanks!
