Hi all, I am new to this forum and have a question for all of you. I believe that one of the Paragon softwares is the one for the task I want to accomplish, but I would like some advice as to which one and how to get the job done as smoothly as possible. I would like to migrate my existing XP SP3 install from a 7 yr old Dell (OEM install) to a new machine and hard drive that I either purchase or build. I will upgrade to 7 or dual boot at sometime after I get my XP install up and running. I realize that my Dell OEM license will not be valid for the transfer, so I have purchased a new RETAIL XP license to use to activate the migrated system. In your opinion(s) which software should I choose? What problems may I run into, (if the migration is possible at all; as I have read that what I want to do is fraught with problems and issues and may be impossible)? Will the retail XP license work for this transfer? Would I be better off using a virtual enviroment? I really don't know much about that, anyway. I really appreciate all your help in advance, as I want to accomplish this over the next couple of months and want to plan the potential move properly! EDIT- One last question, please. If I install one of the programs on the pc that I want to migrate and then succesfully migrate to the new machine, do I need to purchase another copy to install on the new machine? Or could it be uninstalled from the old machine and reinstalled on the new?
