My aunt bought a Toshiba laptop very cheap (probably from a local online classified ad or Facebook Deals w/Friends or something similar). She bought it to give to one of my uncles, who is disabled and mostly homebound. He only wants it to play some simple games offline, and to browse the Web a little. My problem is that the laptop has Linux Mint for an operating system. I played with it some and can't figure a lot of the features out. I would much rather have a Windows OS on it, as I'm more familiar with it and can show him how to use it better than a Linux OS. The laptop has factory stickers on it saying it is set up for Windows XP and is Vista compatible. I know nothing about Linux. Is it possible to image the HDD of my XP Professional laptop and transfer the image to the Linux computer? If so, please tell me how to accomplish this. I would like to put some type of Windows OS on it because if something ever goes wrong with it he would most likely ask me to work on it for him. He doesn't have the money to go buy a new install disk, and neither do I, so I need a solution that is easy and free. I've seen this done from one Windows computer to several others, but never from a Windows computer to a Linux. Please help! I need this done as soon as possible. Thanks.
