    I have just purchased a new MBP and I would like to "clone" my XP partition as is from my old MBP to my new MBP. However, I am not sure if this is possible. I have several concerns:

    -The new MBP has totally different specs. Additionally, it will require different drivers for XP and Boot Camp. I do not know if this will prevent me from installing the cloned version of XP.

    -I would like the XP partition to be much larger in the new MBP (60Gb vs 25GB in old MBP). I do not know if this affects the process.

    If this is possible, please let me know what I would have to do. Thanks a lot!

    Use Winclone to clone your XP partition and restore to the new partition

    I agree....

    Did it, and it worked beautifully.

    And - the partition on the new drive was larger than the one the old one.

    Same issues as you with respect to graphics etc - had to re-validate with WGA but that was about it.
