    I've been using Drive Copy 11 Pro and now Drive Copy 12 Pro.
    I'm trying to move a hard drive install from one computer to another.
    Both have XP Pro on them.
    I can make a copy of the old drive onto the new drive.
    But then at boot, the system reboots right after the Windows splash screen appears.
    At one point I got the impression that I needed new SATA disk drivers, so I created a boot disk with them on it. I can't tell that they were used and this didn't seem to help.
    I ran the XP disk command line and did a fixmbr and fixboot but that did no good either.
    I've used this before but it's not working this time.

    If the hardware is different windows will likely not boot. You could try the paragon p2p adjust. It will tell you if you need drivers for the os on the new hardware. It will also inject them for you.
