Ttansfer Windows XP Pro with all programs to a new PC
Posted on 2011-03-01
I just purchased a Dell Precision Workstation and I want to transfer Windows XP, with all my programs (I do not have some of the installation CDs) from my old Dell Dimension to this computer.
I've tried reinstallation of Windows XP Professional with the provided Dell CD - I chose the second "repair" (install) option and it worked OK on a Dell Optiplex GX620 (the GX620 is about 3 years old). This method does not finish the repair install on the new Dell Precision - instead it does a continuous reboot (I see a blue screen flash, but it's too fast to pause or read - I think i see 0x0000007B).
