With the continued reporting about Windows XP users being left out in the cold when it comes to upgrading to Windows 7, here’s some warm information (not hot, since we’ve talked about this before) about using the latest beta of the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 Beta to transfer the user settings and files from a Windows XP installation to a new install of Windows 7 on the same PC.

Here’s where you can download the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 Beta.
