    Stumbled across this on a follow-up on the HAL feature in Windows:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q314070

    SUMMARY
    This article describes how to move an installation of Windows XP to new, upgraded, or just different hardware. By using this information, you can:

    Migrate a working Windows XP operating system and your installed programs to a different or more powerful computer in minimal downtime.


    Replace a small system/boot disk drive with a larger system/boot disk drive.


    Restore a Windows backup from a malfunctioning computer to a different computer for disaster recovery purposes.

    Hope it helps.. this is damn interesting. The process requires an installation of Windows XP on the destination computer (just leave it without 'Activating' it), and then follow instructions to copy over the bugger.. DAMN.
