February 19, , Did a p2v test last night, transferring my current workstation to vmware. Took a bit getting it to work, but that wasn’t PVM’s fault – I attribute it to the fact I was doing the operation at 3am. I forgot to include the Win7 Boot Config Data partition, so obviously the system wasn’t bootable; marking the partition as active and running the “fix problems” thing from the Win7 install CD twice made the virtualized system bootable, though. Today I brewed a strong can of coffee and set out to test v2p.

Sat Oct 24, 6: Ok, this is what I wanted to do: It wasn’t clear to me if just exchanging my motherboard would work, as the drivers would change quite a bit.
I am using Windows 7 The motherboard manual did warn about windows 7 not having the USB 3. Fortunately, there is a USB 2 port on the motherboard, so used that, and crossed my fingers. Well, crossing my fingers and making a disk backup first just in case.
I also purchased a new GTX graphics card, as my older one was not on the Windows 10 support list. I installed it, plus all the drivers, on my PC before I tried the motherboard swap. For preparation, I did prepare a Paragon disk for helping to boot up with a transfer utility to eliminate my old drivers that were no longer valid, and to load the new drivers on my hard drive.
Due to circumstances, was unable to start until this morning. Well, the fans came on, but couldn’t tell what was happening, screens were blank. No post sound either. Of course, I was thinking the worst, and how to proceed. No need for the Paragon utility apparently.
Windows 7 started updating drivers on its own. Eventually my sound came back once the proper drivers were installed. Put the Motherboard CD in the drive, and started uploading all the drivers it said were missing.
Also had to update my new GTX drivers due to the new motherboard. Total time from hitting start to now, about 2 hours, including a couple of short breaks. Had to re-register MS Office, which took 30 seconds online. Haven’t seen a pop up from Microsoft regarding my motherboard change and re-registering Windows 7 yet, though. Was expecting that, maybe it comes later. Still several things to do, including updating the BIOS to a newer version. Was prepared for a lot worse and even some RMA type issues, but everything worked, actually better than I expected.
Will work with this for awhile, and then at some point upgrade to Windows Thanks to PFarkas and just brew it!

The easiest way is to just burn a CD but I did not have any blank disk on hand and I do have plenty of flash drives. Normally I would use something like Unebootin and load it up and point it to the downloaded ISO file but for some reason it just ended up in a menu boot loop. I am unsure how to fix it so I tried alternative programs until I found one that works. It does the same thing as below but with only 2 clicks. You get the same Windows bootloader and it works.
Follow History I think many of us have had this question – how do I transfer my well-adjusted and smoothly running OS plus all applications to new hardware. Usually such error looks as follows: But this is not a solution for a one shot server migration or a home task to move your old laptop configuration to your brand new machine.
