I'm trying to place my harddrive from another laptop into a new laptop that I have.
From compaq to Toshiba.
The harddrive from compaq has win XP professional on it. The harddrive in Toshiba has Win XP Home edition.
I took the harddrive out of the compaq and placed it into an HP laptop and it booted up, no problem, just needed to load drivers, however, when I try to put the same hard drive into my Toshiba laptop,when I boot up i get this message: "This copy of Windows must be activated with Micrososft before you can log in. Do you want to activate Windows now?" I click yes, then, i get to the login screen, enter my login information and then the Windows Product Activation screen comes up that says "Windows is already activated, click ok to exit"
I click ok then it takes me back to the login screen, and continues to loop through the above steps all over again. How can I fix this?
Thanks- I've got work to do with this harddrive
