I have seen this topic on the forums but do not see a clear answer. Could someone hold my hand as if a three year old and tell me how to resolve this Windows XP problem? I am getting nagged to reactivate Windows within two days now having spent all weekend trying to do this seemingly simple task. 1. I downloaded the trial copy of TI 2. I cloned my existing smaller HD to a new larger HD using True Image/... sucess 3. I changed the jumpers on the new drive to master. 4. I swapped out the old drive and replaced it with the new cloned drive. 5. I booted the system and it will not go past the pale blue screen with the Windows logo on it. I am using my wife's computer and when I post this I will place my old HD back in the system and log on over there. I know that this topic has been discussed before but would someone please tell me step by step how to copy my WinXP primary drive with the OS on it to a larger drive and get it to boot?
