I am getting a Core2Quad Q6600 with a Asus P5K-E motherboard to replace my Celeron D 340 and MachSpeed Motherboard. I wanted to know how to clone my XP installation to the new motherboard and processor. I know I had done this before I think by running a repair install and it worked. My question now: 1. Any easier way? 2. I cloned my XP drive to another hard drive to be able to play around with it. After that, it booted fine in the original computer but when I put it in another computer, I have no HDD activity and the blinking dash (-) at the top left of the screen for ever and it doesn't attempt to load Windows XP. If I try to run a repair, it just takes me to the install XP page, it doesn't detect the previous install and doesn't give me an option to repair. What should I do to fix this? I have so much stuff on my hard drive that if I think about reformatting, I feel like I shouldn't even get a new motherboard/processor.
