I just bought TI 8, build 826, to clone (is that the right word) to a new laptop, from another, malfunctioning (charging capability, only) one. This lapop runs some specialized programs or office equipment that is hard o get proper support or; hence, my need to have a complete and total replacment laptop, vitually identical to the old. The old is an HP; the new is an Averatec, both with CDRWs, plus the new has a larger HD. I am confused, reading the manual, as to the exact steps I need to take, plus the language pertaining to this is minimal, but the primary reason I bought Acronis over any others. The old laptop is being returned and will not run on my LAN once this 'cloning' is completed. Is there a thread that I can go to that lays this out for me, simply? Thanks in advance for the help.
