New machine, hard drive swap

675 Views 24 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  mushroomboy
I do not know where to put this, hard drive or OS section but here we are...

I have a 10 year old Dell pc that has a failed motherboard. It turns out that it would be better to build a one rather than buy a replacement motherboard.

My dilemma - I want to either move the hard drive over to the newly built computer (or if possible copy the hard drive on to a new one). I have Windows XP on this machine and I would like to know if this would work (work meaning, will Windows XP run on the new machine)

Thanks!

Why do you require a sinigle core? I'm sure you could build a small atom board that is single core. They sell the cases/motherboard/atom cpu's all separate and it would probably be much cheaper.
