    Hello,

    I have just made a restore test, to see how Acronis works.
    My system is a XP SP3. (Original, Licensed copy)

    Everything goes smoothly concerning the Restoration except for it asks me to activate the copy, I suppose this happens for Windows to check it is an original Windows XP.

    What I really don’t know is what will happen when the old computer crashes (it is 6 years old) and I have to perform the actual restoration in another hardware…Will I be able to use the XP Serial from the old hardware?

    THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE!
