help me clone my laptop to a new desktop
There are several ways rto do it. If you have the bootable winpe cd that comes with the new version - boot the cd, point it at the drive , that's it.
If you have the earlier version, install it on your brothers machine.
Put the HD back in your brothers machine.
Boot into your brother's o/s , start paragon, point Adaptive restore ( it's called P2P Adjust o/s ) at the HD in question, select "Do not Upload Drivers", click Finish.
Don't then try and boot it up on your brothers machine, put the HD back in your machine and boot up.
