Yes, there is a way. Go to this link Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free and follow the instructions and make a copy of your system and a boot disk. The boot disk is important because you need to get your new system going, You will copy it to your new system. It is made for when you have a problem and your system shuts down, but you can do this also to transfer files. If I have not made myself clear as mud, please ask again. Good Luck

Hi John Hoh,

Could you please elaborate a tad more?
How do you install CLASSIC SHELL?
Does CLASSIC SHELL come with WIN 10?, and if not, where can I go to download it?
Where can I go to download WINAERO TWEAKER?

Thank you for your help!

You could try a search engine for classic shell and winaero tweaker.

The same one you used to find this site, for example.

You can't simply Clone an OS to move to another computer with MR that I know of, if so please post the link to that info.

Supposedly you can do this with AOMEI. It may get complicated moving from MBR to UEFI though.

BIG MCK-
please note:

Agree with Nasty7--Once you install an OS, it customizes itself to the hardware of that computer. You can, however, use it to restore the the HD in the same computer if your HD turns to toast. You can also use the clone to restore data that's been lost, in ANY computer. That's why it's wise to have your data on a separate partition.

OH come on everyone Windows 10 ain't that bad so stop being one of the arm chair Windows 10 users and actually do the Windows 10 free upgrade while it is available.

I've installed Windows 10 on everyone of my Windows 7 (2010) desktop computers and I've had no problems doing so.

Windows 10 works good for my minimal computer needs, browsing, streaming youtube videos etc.

OK I don't really care for it however it's free for the taking and I sure wouldn't pay for it.
I'm a Linux user and if for any reason I find I no longer want to use Windows 10 I'll just continue to use Linux.

Life Is Good.
