Windows 7: Best upgrade path from XP Pro?

29 Dec 2009   #11


In the future, shrinking, extending, deleting, creating, formatting partitions in Windows 7 is safest done by Disk Management.

Easeus is not recommended for Win7; we use free Partition Wizard CD here for the advanced jobs moving, deleting and resizing partitions where Disk Management cannot go.

Easy Transfer is set up to transfer from old install into new one. You could try to use it to transfer your files from Old (Vista) to New (Win7). I would just drag them through explorer, then delete Vista asap since it is a corrupt ghost OS. Then repartition as desired using Disk Management or Partition Wizard CD, which can also run a File System check and HD surface scan to check all the corruption is gone.
