Move from XP to Windows 7 with the Automated Physical-to-Virtual Migration Tool

A new tool from Microsoft helps customers stuck on Windows XP or Windows Vista make the jump to the latest iteration of Windows, even though applications in their environments require a pre-Windows 7 operating system.

The Redmond company is currently inviting testers to take P2V Migration for Software Assurance Beta out for a spin.

The Beta bits for the automated physical-to-virtual migration tool are live on Microsoft Connect, and early adopters can grab the release and start testing immediately.

“Help unblock OS deployments by redelivering blocking users' old Windows environments, applications and browsers seamlessly in Windows 7 using automated physical-to-virtual migration,” reveals Microsoft’s Graham Watkins.

According to the software giant, P2V Migration for Software Assurance is designed to leverage both the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and Sysinternals Disk2VHD.
