    Hi, I successfully cloned a Windows to another machine witch TI6 and it worked fine unless some servers like WSUS does not recognize the difference between the two machines. I guess I have to change the Windows UUID? At least VMware makes it while cloning some virtual machines - so how can I do this by manual interention?

    Thanks in advance, Tobias.

    Thank you, will try that. I found also a tool from Sysinternals called NewSID which should do the job.

    BTW, great product - helps a lot!
