Windows 7: Restore to dissimilar hardware

29 Mar 2013   #11

Microsoft® Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Acronis failed on this computer (mouse/keyboard didn't work, system kept freezing etc.) but Paragon worked excellent.

Paragon Virtualization Manager freeware or Paragon Adaptive Restore boot CD? Both are now no longer available to preview but merged into the full Paragon imaging app.

I used the Paragon Adaptive Restore Boot CD. It worked perfectly.
