    Transferred Users not showing up on login screen


    I transferred from an old PC to a new PC using Zinstall's Winwin software. While the transfer was seemingly completed and the users from the old PC show up under the Users folder with all their data, they do not show up on the login screen.I would really appreciate any help, ideas or suggestions.The PC is running the Windows 10 (1903)

    Was the old PC also with win 10?
    When you open User accounts are the others users there?
    Zinstall's Winwin software isn't windows software so it's difficult to us to help. Contact the software provider.

    Why not just copy the Windows partition from the old computer to the new computer, then boot from the copied partition?

    What version of Windows was the old machine running, along with what version of Windows 10 is the new machine running? Transferring a older version of Windows profile to Windows 10 can screw things up.

    This is an example of how to transfer a Windows 7 profile to Windows 10 without third party software. User Profile Transfer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 (Easy Windows Transfer) - Spiceworks

    This includes using EaseUS todo to migrate. How to Use Windows Easy Transfer to Migrate XP to Windows 10 EaseUS

    This is the best way to transfer. Laplink has been used for over two decades and works. Laplink | PCmover(R)

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Here are some of the answers to your questions.In hindsight I should have asked the members here on the best way to do this before trying to take the "easy" way out.

    The old PC was also a Windows 10 PC.

    I should not have used Zinstall, I just got lazy.

    The new PC had very different hardware than the old PC which is why I did not try cloning the disc or copying/transferring the Windows partition.

    I wish I had known about EaseUS.

    I definitely will go through the steps in the article posted by bro67. Keeping fingers crossed

    The simplest solution is just to copy the Windows 10 partition over. The only difference in hardware that would be a show stopper would be the SATA drive controller. And id both computers are in AHCI mode and the basic Microsoft controller driver is being used, then there is no problem. Windows 10 will even move between Intel and AMD with no problems.

    Would cloning the drive and booting with the new drive in the new PC be the same?

    Yes, unless there is a conflict between Legacy BIOS (CSM) and UEFI booting. For example if the old computer is Legacy BIOS and the new computer is UEFI, then the new computer will have to have secure boot disabled, and CSM enabled. If both computers are UEFI, then that won't be a problem.

    Thanks. I will give it a shot and post back
