XP to vista and install sata drive

Yes vista will format & install on the new drive. Just make sure if there is an o/s on the old drive that you set up windows vista as a dual boot if you wish to keep using the o/s on the old drive. Hope this helps.

Not booting up

The OS doesn't like all the changes that were made. To keep people from cloning hard drives and putting them in whatever machine they want, microsoft winxp recognizes even subtle changes, upgraded cpu, memory video cards etc.

  1. put the hard drive in the old machine
  2. run link
  3. Software
  4. click on Installed Program
  5. click on licenses
  6. .click on report
  7. quick report licenses html
  8. click on print
  9. select page 1
These are the key codes for your machine,
now put hard drive in new machine, boot with xp pro cd and choose repair option. re-enter key code when prompted and telephone Microsoft in activation wizard.

MoBo Replacement

did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.

Boot up problem

Did you go into your bios and reset with factory settings. Also did you try to boot up with the windows xp installation disk. Try that and let me know what happens. Are you sure the hard drive is ok too. let me know if you get it going if not get back here. I'll be in and out all day so when I get your message back I will get to you asap.
Thanks hope that helps some. You get into your bios by pressing the delete Key or F2 key when your are starting up and your computers logo is on continue pressing until your bios screen comes on. Read your instructions and follow how to reset bios to factory settings... anymore ?s just ask
