Quote:
There's been a lot of press about how there isn't a an upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7. In this video, Jeremy walked me through using the latest beta of the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, specificallly the User State Migration Tool, to transfer the user settings and files from a Windowx XP installation to a new install of Windows 7 on the same PC.

Hi, I was all on for trying it, but I aborted because of the runaround I seemed to be getting, trying to install the application they were talking about,so I partitioned the XP hard drive and Installed as normal, and it is running like a dream,but I would have liked to have tried the other way just to see what it was like,it looks good ,if you can get it to work.

Nice.
One question.
Is there anyway I can do that on a machine running Vista to downgrade to XP?

I don't think so? It is designed for XP & Windows 7.

It has the Windows Vista sticker on it.
More info: It is a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527

When I tried to install XP, I did a clean install by the way, I got most everything to work right except some bugs with the USB mouse and some weird driver errors that the solutions did not fix. I ended up just putting Vista back on, but the system runs very poorly on it.

Deathsink,

The program (Deployment kit) is not for win Vista. It is designed for Win XP and Windows 7.
