How to create a Backup Server using XP pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Windows XP Pro as a Webserver using php,mysql etc.

    Want to clone the hard drive and move it to different computer as a backup server without all the hastles and weeks spent setting up all the software and websites to work.

    My plan was to purchase new xp pro disk.  Is it possible to clone the hard drive, move it to different computer, enter a new license, the validate?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • You can also sysprep it and image/copy anyway you want to, and at next reboot, itll look for new drives.

  • I assume when you say "it" will be just like new, and "it" will look for new drives, you mean the new imaged copy of windows - and not the existing copy?

    If I use sysprep then it will ask for a new license??
