Hello guys...

My laptop needs a new Hard Drive, aswell as copying the contents onto the new HD can I also copy the Operating System. I don't have the original OS Disk.... Thanks... NR.

with the Windows XP OEM software installed you may certainly make a copy for your new drive.

If your computer had a retail version of XP installed you'll need the installation CD - you can't just copy the Windows folder to the new drive because it won't work.
