I'm currently running XP Pro SP3 on a desktop and have it set up as I like. I'm expecting to be getting a used laptop soon and I'd like to load XP on it with the same properties as I have on my desktop.
Can someone advise as to the easiest way to copy the OS properties from the desktop to the laptop?
Should I load XP on the laptop first, then use my latest System Restore file from the desktop? For copying other files, can I connect an ethernet cable between both PCs? I do not have a router.
Thanks in advance for any advice, I'm hoping others' experience will help.
