Simply copy over the system.dat and user.dat files to copy the registry.  However, if configurations don't match between A and B, you will have some trouble.

Therefore, why not make a ghost image of the hard drive on A and copy it over to the harddrive on B?  Use the program Ghost available here:

This will make an exact duplicate of your hard drive to copy over to the other hard drvie...How do you transfer the info?

Detach hardrive on Computer B and put in as a slave in computer A.  Use Ghost and copy contents from the main hard drive to the slave hard drive.  When done, put the drive back in pc B, and boot up.

Try this,

What is the operating system and version on each computer?
Is it possible to connect hard drive from PC-A into PC-B?
Answer depends on your responses.
