cloning a hd is one thing.
But my issue is as follows:
If my computer crashes & i want to use a new computer, & have windows 7 installed on a functional hd, & undock the hard drive & put it in the new laptop, i get a windows fatal error, because of principal drivers
not installed for the new pc in my system. & .. . I do not want to install windows 7 all life long & reinstall backups over, it'll never be as perfect as my original system, cause backups don't know what i removed from my registry or Windows 7 system, & i will be left with many orphan files & maybe a conflict or two & more updates to perform or reinstallation of software. unfortunately Windows 7 is not plug & play, like win98 that could be undocked easily & docked in a new computer, then the os would call the new material detection tool to install the new computers drivers. my questions are: ·
is there a way to make a Windows 7 system plug & play after having
undocked it ? -
is there a registry tweak i can try before undocking my hd,
to make sure a material detection process will be launched ? -
is there a tool that will turn Windows 7 into a plug & play system
& reinstall drivers on the fly ?
