Thought this link would be useful and you might consider putting the MS links in your tutorial.

Windows Easy Transfer - If your old PC isn't running Windows 7, you'll need to install the appropriate version of Windows Easy Transfer.

Why DL it when you have it on the Win7 DVD?

You will find it in the X:\Support\Migwiz folder (where X is the drive letter of your DVD), just double click on the migwiz.exe app to start it.

Is the XP and Vista version on the Win7 DVD?

I thought Vista was the same and XP different. Does anyone know if the XP WET is different?

It would seem logical since Microsoft has different links. They would not do that unless the files were different. It would be too confusing to some.

Used Windows Easy Transfer on Windows xp 2 months ago, unfortunately, I forgot my password.

I am now attempting to extract those files under Windows 7. Is there a way to bypass the password part?

Tried using MigRecover, no good. Thank you.

Can the easy transfer wizard be used to transfer files and settings from a Win 7 32 bit machine to a Win 7 64 bit machine?

Thanks folks

Really hoping that some of you experts can help out with this one!

My old XP PC has been giving me problems recently, frequent crashes and slow performance. I have, today, been out and purchased a new Windows 7 PC.

After looking at the forums I decided to use the Easy Transfer Wizard over Ethernet method. All was going well until my old PC crashed half way through the transfer. Thus I had to start over, again, my old PC died half way through.

Now I know that it is possible to mount my old internal hdd in my new PC as an additional drive. However, I was wondering if it is possible then to run the Transfer wizard from my old HDD to the new one within the same PC? I realise that I could manually copy the data and config files between drives but was hoping that the Wizard can handle this situation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
