    Windows 7 64-Bit

    I have recently purchased a motherboard and new CPU so I was going to use this guide to get windows moved over. Followed all the steps and received the fatal error message. I saw your solution for this message and ran sysprep again. The error occured again only taking longer to appear this time. I am not sure if anyone else has experienced this issue since there are 30+ pages of information. I will start reading and hopefully I can find something.

    Impossible executing sysprep in a computer upgraded to a new Window's version. It is only possible in a personalized (clean) version of Windows.
    Solved, I deleted the registry's key called "upgrade" o
    I wish I'd skipped to the end of this thread yesterday. I never thought to look for a registry entry.
    I am running an OEM Win7 64bit, but did a 'repair' reinstall about a year ago . I am guessing the reason for this is you have also done a 'repair' reinstall of Win7 in the past ?
    I would like to have done the sysprep, just to get things a bit cleaner, but -

    I still managed to get my Intel HD4000 graphics fully operational. It took a while to stumble through it, but I'll try to get the order of events correct.
    -After imaging my old Win7 (AMD machine) I did a very thorough uninstall of all drivers and as much cleaning as possible, before moving the new drive to my new machine.
    -I moved the SSD to the new machine and installed all the new drivers and left the ATI graphics drivers (HD7970) till last (old was Nvidia),
    -Then as expected (because I'd been there before) the Intel HD4000 had a Code 12. Booting with BIOS set to Integrated graphics I reinstalled the Intel HD graphics drivers again. After another re-boot this allowed the Resources tab to display the conflicting I/O (10000-1FFFF).

    - There are a lot of posts that mention the AMD 3GIO filter so I uninstalled that - no benefit.
    The Fix :
    -There was also talk of AMD PCI bus (didn't write down the whole term) in System Devices . I had nothing AMD/ATI in System Devices but clicked on the tab for PCI bus and found a conflicting I/O in the Resources tab.
    No, it was not the same I/O number as the one in Intel graphics. The note pointed to - ACPI x64-based PC -
    I decided to try an update of the driver anyway.
    -In the - "Let me computer" I found both the AMD 3GIO filter and an Intel PCI bus driver.
    I selected the Intel PCI bus driver and hey presto. I have a fully functional Intel HD4000 graphics.

    -Oddly the conflicting I/O in the PCI bus is still there, but the conflicting I/O in the Intel HD graphics is gone.
    I assume the AMD 3GIO filter is part of Windows as it re-installs automatically after re-boot as well (off line).

    btw - I had no issue with booting into Windows with either of the two system images I have done
    using OEM Win7 HP 64bit. Re-activation was done on line as well.

    Does this work when changing chipsets, say P45 to a Z77 or X79?

    Hi Cat, welcome to the Seven Forums.

    Honestly, I have never tested. But why not, it should work, for basically changing the chipset is as if the MoBo was changed.

    Thanks for the reply. I am just trying to minimize headache when upgrading my core 2 quad. It looks like if I save MY DOCUMENTS and settings in a seperate folder it should be all set up without issues.

    Thanks again. I am bookmarking this tutorial for sure.

    Thank you Kari and xxxwea :)!!!

    Wishing you both, Happy and Healthy New 2013 !

    Never before I accomplished transferring hard drive with existing OS into a new computer;

    I'm just a computer enthusiast and a family IT guy in the end - until I found your tutorial, which

    worked flawlessly - at this point enormous gratitude to xxxwea and his 2 cents; without it wouldn't have

    a clue how to proceed ...:)!

    Thanks guys once again and all the best to all the curios who'll read this post some day and find it reassuring !
