Windows 7: AMD to Intel. Transferring files to new HDD

What do you mean I can't transfer my programs? I have over 1tb of data that needs to be transfered. I can't just start over on a fresh install.

Programs inside the Programs Files folder can't be moved to a new hard drive . You would need to reinstall all of the software again.

Starting over can't be the only way to switch from AMD to Intel. Is there any way?

You can not transfer installed programs from your old drive to your new drive . The software would have to be reinstalled.

What about my Users folder? Can I transfer that? And for some reason I can't even get it to load when my old HDD is connected as drive F. The green loading bar gets stuck at the end.

You could transfer the folders inside the Users\{ your account name\

Folders like My Documents , My Video , My Music , Favorites , Download .

You could change your boot Oder in the bios under boot

Transferring my user folder doesn't seem to be doing anything. I waited for the files to copy but after it did, no changes were made to the user folder.

We are not Bill Gates, we are not here to tell you why you can`t transfer your programs over. And you are starting over. You did a fresh install on a new system. You can get your data off the old hard drive, but as mentioned you have to reinstall your programs. We are here to help you, not for you to argue with us.

Why are you attempting this at 3 AM and without doing any research before you started this project ?
