Upgrading from Intel Gen 4 to Gen 8

Question

Sinster    3

I'm trying to back up my Windows drive, but for the life of me I can't figure out why it's including another drive that I use for temp files. I can't untick it either it says it's required by Windows.

I was also thinking about taking my chances on going into safe mode removing all chipset drivers etc... I'm trying keep my registery and of course my documents. I have a few obsolete programs that if I actually do a fresh install I will not be able to use them or get the program. Would backing up registery and then importing it work?

 

Running Windows 10 and using "backup and restore (windows 7)" under control panel.

If your old pc is not uefi or your windows installation is not in uefi mode then chances are the other drive contains the boot loader because it is identified as disk index 0. What you can do is set detecthal on via bcdedit and capture and image of your installation using dism or imagex and apply the image to the new pc

Hello,

 

The temporary file directory drive on the other drive is part of Windows.  It is just stored on a different drive.

 

Try restoring the temporary file directory to its original location and then try your backup program.

 

Regards,
