Hmmm, mine has a SATA drive in it (WD1600BEVT), and obviously a SATA connector
Do you have the E-SATA connector, that would imply a SATA bus internally.
I'm not sure if you could sell the XP license, it's probably tied to that
particular hardware, but IANAL (nor am I a cryptologist, which is probably
what you would need to understand the MS license). I tried to get my license
fee refunded, but got bogged down in red tape, which is probably just what
they hope and expect to happen.
