when you say getting new hardware do you mean like building a new computer basically
in that case i would do a clean install tbh because xp would get confused when you booted it onto completely different hardware
Thanks for the response!
The driver issues I could take care of and yes building a new machine, I was just going to scrap this machine and that's were I was confused about the OEM thing. I thought as long as the licensed OS is just running on one machine no problem, but have also done some reading since I posted. And my solution is what the hell get another copy of XP for the new machine and just donate my old machine to a church or something like that.
This machine (the old one) is still very healthy, just really upgrading for gaming reasons but the number one reason is a multi-track music program that I use Sonar 6 The more tracks I lay down the more it fights, so it;s time.
