 Cloning XP Pro Drives

The only thing that I have actually seen work in this scenario, as I have come across it many times before. You have to boot the original XP disk using a seperate boot device, such as a PCI IDE Controller. Make sure the system works, then clone that drive. Replace the original drive with the cloned drive on the same IDE controller and reboot, all should be fine, then install all the drivers for the raid controller, and any new chipset drivers that came with the mainboard. After that finishes with hopefully no errors, remove the IDE controller and connect the drive as you would normally, then reboot.
