    i installed viamrx64 about 18 months ago and its only just come back to me having been researching the problem. The bizzare thing is I could not find anywhere in device manager that pointed to viamrx64. As i say the second time i did sysprep I removed all sata drivers etc from device manager and still had the problem, so i dont know why it was still causing a problem. I followed method 1 in the tutorial which doesnt mention about deleting drivers etc so I guess it should be updated to state that you should delete sata/ide/raid drivers in anycase before you sysprep. I hope my post can help someone who has a similar problem in the future.

    Thanks again

    sysprep should indeed do a total reconfig of devices.

    Yes, Erick. Method One is the one you should do.

    No. The stuff you lose is things like desktop background, theme, icon packs and so on. All your software remains intact.

    Please notice you also lose Windows activation and need to reactivate, so have your original product key ready.

    I have a dual boot capable system. I turned off the dual option. I have built a new machine and would like to use the turned off drive to run it.
    a) How do I turn on the "off" drive to use sysprep for hardware transfer?
    b) Will the current machine default to the installed drive for bootup?

    I was planning to change the motherboard of the computer of my girlfriend, so I wanted to prepare the system with sysprep for a "last resort" method, but I got the message that sysprep doesn't work because Windows was upgraded and it was not a fresh install.

    I suppose there is no way to bypass this limitation. Any comment?
