How do I restore XP Mode from backup?
Please can you give us some steps on how to restore from these backups?
I have Windows 7 Professional, 64-Bit .
I have XP Mode looking nice now, with my legacy game installed and running nicely
I have created a folder called C:\XP Mode Backups Apr 7 2014
In this folder are 59 folders and files copied from the backup directories
]So, in the event that I have to re-install XP Mode, how can I restore it as is will all the applications, and especially ALL the Windows Updates for XP Mode that I cannot connect to the internet ever again after 8th April 2014.
You see my concern, after XP D-Day, I am only supposed to run XP Mode after I have disconnected from the internet.
So, I don't want to have to spend 2 hours on the internet downloading all the updates that were released prior to XP Apocalypse day.
Is it possible for some instructions on how to restore from the above files?
I am guessing that I can just re-install XP Mode from the download (which I am also keeping in that folder, then copy the files from the above backup directory into the correct locations on my Windows 7 C:\ drive.
Alternatively, is it just a case of going to the %USERPROFILE%/Virtual Machines directory, click Create Virtual Machine and after choosing location, and clicking Next, select Use an existing virtual hard disk and choose the VHD for Windows XP Mode in my restore folder? I guess in this case there is no need to reinstall XP Mode from the download executable from Microsoft?
Which one is correct?
Thanks for any help
