Moving Windows 7 disk or disk image to different hardware
With Server 2003 and Windows XP, you could do an "Inplace Reinstall" to move a disk or disk image to different hardware (if it wouldn't start because of a different "Hardware Abstration Layer")
I just moved my Windows 7 drive from a Dell Precision 390 to a Dell Precision T3400 and it won't start.
The "inplace reinstall" was a no brainer with Server 2003 / XP. Just put in the CD, Boot, select "Upgrade" and walk away.
Is there a similar no brainer for Windows 7. There is no Upgrade option when you boot to the DVD.
