In my DeskTop I have two Hard discs with partitions,both have Windows XP installed on their "C" partitions, I have made a cloned image of first C drive using DriveImage XML , I want to format(Fresh Installation of Windows XP,no reparing) on 2nd "C" drive using WindowsXP CD.After Fresh installation, I want to restore(Using DriveImage XML) some applications like MS OFFICE or any other application which is available in cloned image and is working on Ist "C" drive,how do I do this so that I need not to enter product key of application programme and Application to work on the 2nd "C" drive also.

As additional information I Presently approach to desired drive by changing boot sequence or disconnecting supply of one of the Hard Disc. I have also created Ultimate Boot CD as per instructions given in the tutorial.Can I do the task without using Ultimate Boot CD.

Please help

Hi, 49skj.
If you are talking about extracting an installed program from a cloned OS, and installing the program to a different HDD, forget about it. I wont say it is impossible, but extremely unlikely.
If you get it figured out, throw me some knowledge.
