I have a quick question about whether or not I need to use Sysprep. From what I've read in the FAQ and at Microsoft's knowledge base, I only need to use Sysprep if I am making a "hardware change." So what exactly is a hardware change? If I just swap out my HDD in my laptop, am I ok? This is my configuration: Laptop with XP SP2 One 60GB drive, partitioned into C (programs) and D (data) I backup images, drive D more often than C Backup to an external firewire drive So if I lost my HDD, or decided to upgrade the HDD, I'd be fine just using the recovery CD and recovering my Drive C image to a new drive, correct? There is only one drive in the laptop. And I'd have no problem booting up into XP again? If I somehow lose my C drive, I just want the fastest way to recover everything without having to reinstall & configure dozens of programs. Thx.
