I got the ZIP but I still didn't understand what it is.. Excuse my lame... :). Could you please briefly describe it so that I know if this is something I need?

You don't need it if you want to use paragon to inject the drivers.

It can be used for other things, installing/unistalling updates/drivers, backing up activation, applying/creating/mounting/servicing wim/esd images and plenty more.

If you unzip it and have a play, you will quickly see what you can do with . It is very obvious - the UI can be used by a 5yr old.

Does it make a difference if a Win7 is transferred from an Intel system to an AMD using Paragon? Or it must be same platform?

I'm considering an AMD machine instead...

Thanks.

Will the method described in this thread work using these custom USB drivers if I point Paragon Adaptive Restore to them prior to changing the motherboard?
Its not working.. I've spend two days trying to transfer Win 7 to an AMD hardware. Paragon doesn't recognize Canonkong's INF drivers, without them I get BSOD and restart upon booting from new hardware. My motherboard is Asrock x570 Taichi which has dual PS2 port but for some reason it doesn't work with my PS2 mouse (the mouse works on old PC)...

Also Paragon doesn't see drives over 2Tb it seems...

DISM+++ is to mount drivers into in installation ISO so it won't help me as I'm trying to transfer existing OSs, right?

That paragon is in 32 bit windows 7 winpe. So you probably need something more recent in 64 bit pe.

Maybe try use O&O to adjust to new hardware and add the drivers.




You can include dism++ in winpe or a running OS and point at any other installation to integrate drivers.

This boot media has dism++ already included

But what difference does it make if PE is 32 or 64 bit, in regards to Paragon adjusting OS?

I still didn't understand what dism++ does. Can it integrate drivers into an image only or into existing OS into its library of drivers? I need the latter so that I can just transfer existing OS to new hardware.
