If you still accessible to the operating system on your old computer so it's quite simple

* in your running xp go to device manager and change "ide" driver to "Standard"
* change computer to "advanced conf...."
* Delete this registry entry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Intelppm"
* move/clone your disk to the new pc

If you didn't have a chance to make those changes and you can't run the system on your old hardware anymore (motherboard is Dead)

* You can try to make these changes Offline But it's a bit complicated and there is much simpler solution that works always "acronis universal restore"

acronis universal restore

* create .tib image with "acronis true image" of your os partition (all microsoft os's)
* restore your .tib on your new pc useing "acronis true image with universal restore"

I only have one question:
Since "acronis univercal restore" is able to deal with all obstacles of different hardware.
Is there also a version that can do it by just cloning the disk instad off create & restore image?

I don't think so.
At leat not in Acronis prodcuts.

They have designed it to make backup and to restore systems... and i don't think there is that option.
I've been using those products for a while, and havent seing any of these you were asking.
not saying its impossible... just didnt see it.

Hi Shibby,

Acronis Universal Restore is not included by default, you need to install the add-on package or 'PlusPack', depending on version used. Both require a separate license to work. Once installed/activated, the option becomes available in Restore settings.

Not that I'm aware of, from Acronis Support:

If your bare-metal machine has hardware configuration identical to that of the original computer then you can simply clone the hard drive. In this case all contents of the source disk including it's MBR will be transferred to the destination hard drive.

In case your bare-metal machine has a different hardware configuration then you should create an image of the entire source disk saving it to any type of the supported media, boot your bare-metal machine from Bootable Rescue CD and restore the beforehand created image using Acronis Universal Restore. In this case all contents of the source disk including it's MBR will be transferred to the destination hard drive.
