Hello,
I have an older Compaq computer with a genuine version of Windows XPPro & Product Key on the case, if I can fine find Folder i386, can I re-install into a larger HDD to be fitted on the sames machine, if so how would this be done
Many thanks

most hard drive manufacturer's allow you to download a utility program that you can burn to a CD. You can then boot from this CD and copy your old hard disk to the new one. Western Digital has one of the better programs.

Good Luck
