So far I've did a full backup via Acronis True Image 2012 (read online about it) and I'm lost on what should I do next? Do bear in mind that I'm a "noobie" in tech stuff
If I were in your shoes, I would:
1: Back up my data to another disk and later transfer it to the new installation manually, without using Acronis or any software--just copy the stuff to another disk with the mouse.
Or, you should be able to simply install the old HD in the new PC (next to the new PC's hard drive) and transfer your data files from old drive to new drive with the mouse, assuming the new PC has a new hard drive with Windows 7.
2: Not expect Windows Easy Transfer to necessarily work as advertised.
3: Plan on reinstalling all of my programs, rather than "transferring" them.
