initially i thought you want to have dual boot

if you want to switch hardware it is doable with linux, but windows will fail miserably, reinstalling on the new configuration is the only viable way imho.
moving hard drive should do the trick, but as i said - don't expect XP to work.

If you swap the hard disks then Ubuntu will run fine on the new machine but you will have to reinstall Windows.

Windows will recognise that it is on different hardware and fail miserably.
