Ive got a delema ive just bought an older laptop for cheap that works fine for my needs exept fo the fact that it has a small hard drive. the problem im having is finding a way to get windows on my new hard drive with out spending $100 on a new windows xp cd and regrestration code. i herd that there is a way of doing it with out buying a new windows cd. the people i talked to said that i need to borrow a friends xp cd and load it on to my new hard drive, and then there is a file from my old computer that i copy on to a cd that shows that windows is regristered. if this is true could some one telll me exactly how to do it.
