If you don't have a windows XP installation disk to hand my suggestion is you don't attempt this !
One slip and your XP will be gone for ever ....
I would suggest installing from fresh using the Mint installer.
Whatever you do make sure you have a complete backup of the XP partition before you start !!

So far, I've come across a few articles and forum posts discussing this matter and have come to knowing that there are several softwares that can help me achieve this. The softwares include:
- Partition Image (seems pretty tough to understand)
- The in-built "dd" (can be a disk destroyer if used carelessly)
- CloneZilla (looks like the most user-friendly of them all)
- Remastersys (haven't read much about it)
One more thing to note is I have Windows XP (OEM, no installation disc available) installed on the destination computer and would like to be able to dual-boot Elyssa with it after the cloning. I need some recommendations on what software(s) to choose, pluses and minuses of each of them, and of course early warnings (if any) about what to expect. I'm still fairly new to Linux, so I appreciate detailed information.
Thank you all in advance.
