a bit of background: i'm currently using a laptop with 1.6GHz centrino duo and 1GB RAM running vista home premium. no problems, really, but i recently got myself a desktop with much better specs and no OS installed, so i'm thinking of just backing up my laptop (all files, programs, etc, including its vista OS) and dumping everything in the new desktop, and then just installing a fresh copy of windows XP on my laptop and starting it out again from scratch. question is, how do i go about doing that? can anybody help me step-by-step, including what programs i need, any hardware i need, etc etc? thanks a lot!
