As long as you have the XP Home key Sticker it will work on either HDD

if it is a laptop you will have to save your pics etc... to an external HDD or Flash or CD DVD in order to reinstall on the new HDD as it will have to be formatted to NTFS and will erase anything on it
........................if it is a desktop you can make the new drive the Master install the operating syatem and then make the old drive a Slave by moving the jumpers on the hard drives to ....(.BOTH to >>>CS Cable Select .....)

or Master on new drive....and Slave on the old drive...........

Try both on CS first .....On the cable from the motherboard you will put the master (New HDD) on the plug that you take out of the original hard drive and the second plug on the cable goes to the old hard drive to make it a slave............If you change the jumpers the position of the Hard Disks does not matter......Your choice Good Luck

Installing WinXP or Win2K on 20 GB HDD and Mouse does not select text.


Format the C drive as NTFS and leave the D Drive in tact whilst going through the windows xp setup process.

10gb partition should be plenty of space although 98mb ( are you reffering to the amount of memory ) if so then that may be the issue and if possible I would upgrade that.
