    Sysprep with upgraded Win 10 install


    I have a laptop that has seen better days. The screen has finally stopped functioning, and the second hard drive has now failed. I wish to take the new SSD system drive to put into the new laptop I have purchased,

    The OS on the SSD is Win 10 which has been upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate, and is currently running the 1511 upgrade.

    The problem I have is that I am trying to run the Sysprep feature, but it will not run on an upgraded OS. Has anyone been able to get this to work? I would prefer not to have to clean install everything yet again.

    Did you delete the upgrade registry keys etc as described at the bottom of this tutorial? Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I missed one registry entry. But even with that, I still get errors.
    I'm thinking it might just be easier to reimage to the Win 7 OS, then try the sysprep, then move the HD.

    Create a new user account locally, disconnect from internet, login as that user, and try sysprep.

    I'll try that now. The account is being created as I type.

    No change, same error.

    If it helps, here is some of the sysprep log.

    I finally got sysprep to run. Had to check the logs after each failure to see what program was holding up the run. Switch to the other user profile and uninstall whatever program was holding up the sysprep. Go back to the admin account and run sysprep again. Repeated this until the sysprep finally completed.

    Now to see what happens when I move the drive to my new computer.

    You will have a non-activated Windows 10.

    UPDATE
    Well I did get the sysprep to run and installed the drive into my new laptop. I got it up and running with all programs intact and running. As NavyLCDR noted, the copy of Win 10 was not activated. I was using it within the 30 days trial period while fine tuning my system and accounts. I contacted MS Support via chat and got the Windows activation key transferred to the new computer. Then things started getting messed up. Start button and Search and other Explorer functions stopped functioning for my main account. Then the Admin account would not load correctly.
    So in the end, I ended up doing a clean install and starting over again.

    Thanks for all the help.
