Cloning an XP instalation from a SATA disk to an IDE hard with partitionwizard, is this possible?

Will the OS which was originally installed on a SATA disk boot from an IDE hard disk?

Will partition wizard let do the migration?

Beat me, i use the dos version of this for that topic, though my self i would probably just suck the cdkey out of windows xp if you don't have it and reinstall or something, not shore if its possible to do a RAW image of two disks if their not 100% the same size though.

The migration would not be the problem. It's the mass storage drivers for the hard drive that may be a problem. If you go from IDE to AHCI (Sata) you would get a BSOD if the driver was not changed. If your BIOS has AHCI/IDE mode it may allow you to clone from SATA to IDE and boot Windows otherwise you would need to change the Mass Storage Drivers on the XP IDE disk after cloning.

This is a guide for 7 and 8 but I believe the same holds true for XP.
