I'm about to put a bigger hard drive in my laptop so as I can get away with not having to cart around the external drive all the time. I've checked that I can use the original install disks to reload Windows XP but will I be able to use a 'ghost' type programme to reinstall my original software, such as Edius, which is registered , or will I need to go through the fresh install process and then re register?
It's not a problem whichever, I'd just like to get sorted before I start so as I don't end up sitting here at gone midnight!!
Laptop is an Acer Aspire 1362.
