Transfer EP Home from old HD to new Sata HD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an EMachines comp with XP. I never got the XP discs when I bought the new computer. I do have a Recovery Disc. The restore files are on partition 'D". I am trying to install a new SATA 750 GB HD and make that the primary drive. The new drive is installed and formatted in the machine and is recognized as drive 'L" ( a serial ATA host card is also installed).

    How can I install my XP OS on to my new drive without the discs; can it be done from drive 'D" (the original restore partition)? EMachines says that they cannot supply me with OEM XP discs as they are no longer available.
