Retrospect Express - restore DR backup to new computer


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place....


My XP SP2 laptop was involved in an accident and had several bottles of red wine crash over it after it had been knock onto a concrete floor from 4' up. It is now totally dead. The drive was removed and tested on another machine and cannot be read from.


Fortunately I had made a full disaster-recovery backup of the entire drive including the DR CD image the night before using Retrospect Express 6.5.



I have a HUGE number of 3rd party applications installed on the dead laptop and want to avoid having to reinstall them one-by-one. How do I successfully recover the DR image backup to a new laptop when the new laptop will not have the same Microsoft XP license key?
