Transferring XP to new hard drive

  Richardx 17:05 28 Aug 04

My neighbour is replacing his 40gb HD with a new 160gb (the old one will be discarded). His OS is XP Home but the computer apparently came with no discs, having a recovery partition on the drive.

Is it possible to transfer Windows from one hard drive to another without using installation disks?

Some disk manufacturers (i.e. MAXTOR) have utilities for this. I use Partition Magic but any partition manager (i.e. Ranish) should be able to do this for you.

Thanks for your quick replies. They will be passed on and hopefully used!
