  1. My old HP computer did not come with the XP install disc. I want to install a larger internal HD and also partition it to install Ubuntu so can I use a copy of XP Home and my existing product key to install XP on the new HD?

    I would use EASUS disk copy to clone your current disk image onto the new one. Once you reboot using the new HD, then repartition it and install Ubuntu

    btw.. also checkout Neosmart EasyBCD to manage the multi-boot envirnnment if needed
