I've decided on using Macrium to clone my Vista 32-bit laptop to a new, larger drive Dell (Windows 7) 64-bit laptop. Can I use Macrium Standard for this?
There's so much info about cloning via Macrium, some of it conflicting and confusing. And, as a newbie, I'm not sure about the answers to the following questions. I would appreciate your help in cutting through the fog:
Do I download Macrium Standard to old laptop (Vista 32-bit ) or to the new laptop (Dell 64-bit)? Or, can I use Macrium Free to clone old hard drive and use Macrium Standard on new laptop to restore image?
Then, when installing, do I select the architecture for the 32-bit (original laptop) or 64-bit (target laptop)?
Then, other than creating a Rescue Media CD and Backups, do I need to perform sysprep, or is this already taken care of in the Macrium software?
