Hum FWIW I transferred an old HDD with an OEM 7 home premium 32bit installed over the original XP - from the Compaq it was in and put it into a shop built (and better) machine and so far have no problems whatsoever.

No Greg the XP I just fluked it somehow as they are old copies that have I suspect from someone with access to a company that has gone 7 now and is trying to make a few bucks to off set the cost of 7.

My 7 install onto the SSD I didn't do anything except just unplug all the other drives and install the 7 from the OEM disk. Am having few probs with that install and am going to have to do a repair install or go with your tut.
