How do I transfer from old XP Pro pc to new Vista home premium pc?


Answer by  amary5 (78)

First you should back up all your important files such as pictures, music, word docs. That you do not want to lose on another hard drive. Then format your hard drive and do a clean install of your new OS. After the new OS is up and running put back your important files. You should be all set to go.

There are two ways, you can either upgrade the current install of XP to Vista or if you are attempting to transfer your files from XP to Vista on two different computers you can use the Windwows easy transfer tool Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Windows Easy Transfer

First of all you must have zaposowy hard disk or portable drive with high capacity. Then I rip everything to disk and install a new version of Windows.

You need to purchase Windows Vista and put it in your PC. Select the Upgrade if you would like to keep the documents you currently have on there. For a fresh start, select Install.

Put the two PC's on the same network. Press windows key and type "files and settings transfer wizard" on the Vista PC to initiate the transfer. Follow the onscreen instructions.

Generally it is not possible to update from XP Pro to Vista home. Its only possbile to update to business or Ultimate. Because of that the best solution would be to install the operating systems parallel and migrate the data to the new installed vista or pack xp into a virtual machine.
