I have a ghost backup of my compaq intel pentium 4

I need to reinstall it on a amid athlon xp 2600 as i need two operating systems,

will i experience problems as the compaq stores some of the bios on the pentium system.?

In essence what you are doing is the same as if you took the C drive out of the Pentium 4 system and put it into the AMD system, with whatever other system configuration differences.

Should you expect problems....YES. :(

the second os is mine, im trying to do this as its better than reinstalling all the files ive got on my compaq system.

ive got windows xp pro on the amid athlon system, also got the full xp pro disk.

on my compaq it was preinstalled,with windows xp home edision. and ive made a lot of changes to the sytem files and added a lot off new progs, so thats why i need to try and copy all the ghost backup from compaq to athlon....

thanks for the replies..
