    Part 243?!?

    A friend of mine told me about this. He said that you can copy your OS from one HD to another, which is what I need to do to put an OS on my odl pc. Does anyone know where to download this?

    I don't know offhand where to get it. I've never heard of it, but I'm guessing 'part 243' is the name of some software that does the OS copying?

    You might try posting this in the 'tech' forum.

    nah, you need a dohicky, not a part.

    Sounds more like a piracy tool to me, something to circumvent the hardware locking in Windows XP maybe?

    Norton Ghost is the main software package for copying HD contents (including OS) to another drive. I'm sure there are also other software packages to do this.

    O.K. Here's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to copy Microsoft XP from my 80G HD to my 7G HD on my old pc. My old pc currently has no OS on it, so that's why I'm trying to XP onto it......how would I do this?

    Are you going to keep XP on your old PC?
