    Hello,

    I'd like to know if it is possible to use MigrateEasy to migrate a full working system from a computer to a different one (different hardware ie. motherboard, hdd, etc...). o_O

    Hi, Limerick

    I would say no, because of
    .

    MigrateEasy is to move from one HDD to Another, it will not backup to any other media.

    TrueImage will backup to most media

    You can always try, but the odd are it will not work first time, you would have to try a Repair install at the very lest, and IF that worked, you will have to update all the updates again to your Windows OS again.

    Here is a link to what you have to do to [you have not said what OS you have] move to another System.
    ACRONIS FAQ


    Far better to do a clean install to a New System.

    Hello TheQuest. :)

    Thank you for your answer. :cool:

    I did read the FAQ -as you could see by the name of my topic ;) - but I was imaging that MigrateEasy could do the 2 jobs... :doubt:

    In fact, my problem is not TrueImage but is Sysprep, as I'd like to migrate a full working system from a computer to a brand new one :(

    And reading the FAQ let me believe it was possible to do so :D

  5. as i see it:

    migrateeasy is to move/resize partitions between drives (kinda like partition magic)

    true image is to backup drives (like ghost)

    sysprep is to remove hardware-specific stuff (drivers, kernel etc.) from an existing windows install

    so you could use sysprep, then one of the others to do what you want.
