Windows XP to Windows 7 Migration Guide

Although this post is not strictly a deployment post, I felt it worthy because it offers some assistance for planning your Windows 7 deployments!


A great guide has been posted on TechNet recently that should really help with the Windows 7 deployment discussions that a lot of you are hopefully having :-).  The Windows XP to Windows 7 Migration section is a complete guide on pretty much everything you’ll need to know in order to start preparing and planning your migration to Windows 7 from Windows XP.  It starts by gathering information about your hardware/software and then helps with the business decisions you’ll need to make based on your inventory and requirements; it also offers tips/tricks/assistance to help things go smoothly.

The only vital thing that seems to be missing from it is a link to this blog…

    Is there a recommended way to use the litetouch script without connecting to distribution share? I am creating an OS image using litetouch process. But when I deploy the wim image to another computer, distribution share may not be available (in case of remote computer). What is the best way to deal in this case? I need to run few of the post clone scripts as well.

    Any chance of getting a step-by-step video that shows how to do the lite-touch and zero-touch for this? And if the video doesn’t assume the viewer knows commands that would be wonderful. Nothing better than a syntax for a command but doesn’t tell you how to determine what the field should be or how to determine it 🙂

    Step by step guide PLEASE! I just want to setup a Task Sequence to save system state locally, install Windows 7, and restore system state.
