Windows 10: V2P Tutorial needed!!
Was wondering how would i go about moving user folders to another partition while installing from this image since I did not do that while installing the OS the first time.
Can I still move the users folder as if I'm installing the OS for the first time OR do I need to go through the route of moving the users folder (while creating a dummy account that can be deleted later) on existing OS?
Thanks for your assistance
You can always relocate the Users folder in an existing installation (Method Two in tutorial), although I only recommend using the Sysprep method for relocation in clean installs (Method One in tutorial).
It's also perhaps worth noting that the ability to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using the Windows 7 Product Key didn't get switched off immediately on the Windows 10 cutoff date at the end of July.
For all I know, that route may still work and you could use the Windows 7 key during the install process, although you might have better luck using a '1511' ISO to initially install and activate and then installing 1607 later, as it's possible the 1607 installer might not accept a key from Win7/8.x (?)
As far as I know vms can be transferred to another pc but if not you can use the activation troubleshhooter.
i need to backup my complete pc as i am going to install the windows 10 preview. the trouble is that i havent got a usb hard drive. so how do i do this and what software do i use to do this?
