new install

Hello. I am installing Windows 7 Home Premium on a 1 tb hard drive. My system currently has Windows 7 Ultimate. My question is "How do I move my entire music library (including iTunes) and Virtual-box to my external before I install windows?"

Thank you

Boot the Ultimate system and copy them there. Not much more to it that that.

Hi,
You be better re-installing iTunes
Once you do open the iTunes folder in I suppose My Music and copy all the folders inside it
Paste in the new itune install location. after deleting the existing ones from the new iTunes install.

I don't anything about v-box
I read a little about VMware but that's about it never used it personally :/
I don't know what the folder for the iso structure is to say one way or another
If the iso is in a folder along with everything else you should be able to do it the same way
Just reinstall v-box and point it to it the same way as when it was created ?

All you can save are the existing virtual disk images you setup. Normally they will be .vdi files. Just copy the folder they are in to the external drive. After the install and reinstall of Oracle VB just copy the contents of the folder back to where the new install expects them to be, probably the same location they were originally.
