    There Is No Way to Upgrade a Windows XP Computer to Windows 7

    WAIT A SECOND!!!

  • 5. Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010
    How do we take it from out-of-the-box “it just works” to “it does exactly what I need”?
    There are many opportunities for customization
    We can incrementally tweak many different things
    Scripts, wizards, rules, task sequences, database, web services, etc.
  • 6. Upgrade defined
    During an upgrade, existing user settings are retained, as well as installed applications

    (2006)
    So how do people move from Windows XP to Windows 7 then?
  • 7. Our Mission in this session
    Upgrade a Windows XP computer
    Computer has:
    Office and other applications
    Data is 60 GB of data
    Outlook Data
    Word Data
    Pictures
    Videos
    And spend as little time as possible!
  • 8. What Are Our Options?
    Windows XP-to-Windows Vista-to-Windows7 using setup.exe
    Manual migration and install from DVD
    Drive Cloning based on a Reference Windows 7 Install
    Automated Migration with Applications and Drivers
  • 9. Method #1: Windows XP-to-Windows Vista-to-Windows7 Using Setup.exe
    We’ll start with Windows XP SP3
    Upgrade to Windows Vista SP2 using Setup.exe,
    Then we’ll upgrade to Windows 7
    Ugh… We’re not gonna do this!
  • 10. Method #2: Manual Migration and Install from DVD
    We’ll start with Windows XP SP3
    Migrate data off it with the Windows Easy Transfer tool
    Install Windows 7 from a DVD
    Install applications
    Migrate data back with Windows Easy Transfer
    You’ve got to be kidding, I have over 50 machines to do!!!!
  • 11. Method #3:Drive Cloning based on a Reference Windows 7 Install
    We’ll start with Windows XP SP3
    Clone the hard drive of a Windows 7 machine with applications
    Migrate the user data from the Windows XP machine
    Apply the cloned hard drive file to the XP SP3 machine
    Migrate the Windows XP SP3 user data back on to Windows 7
    We’re getting close, but this is still not what we want!!!
  • 12. Method #4: Automated Migration with Applications and Drivers
    We’ll start with Windows XP SP3
    Populate an environment with Windows 7, applications and drivers
    Build automation to do the entire Windows XP to Windows 7 move
    Build a bootable USB stick with all the automation and files
    Migrate the Windows XP SP3 system to Windows 7
    This is more like it!! I like this method!!!!
  • 13. Scenario:
    Creating a Bootable USB Deployment Stick
    Let’s Do It!!!!!
  • 14. Configure Deployment Assets
    Create Deployment Share
    Add Operation Systems, Application, Drivers And Packages
  • 15. Results
  • 16. To upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7, you'll need to select the Custom option during Windows 7 installation
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/help/upgrading-from-windows-xp-to-windows-7
    Upgrade defined in 2009…
  • 17. What’s an “Upgrade”?
    So There is a Double-standard for the Word “upgrade” between IT pros and consumers?
    “Custom Install?”
    WTF?
    Does Anyone Actually Call a “clean install” a “custom install” Though?
  • 18. Create USB Deployment Stick
    Create Bootable USB
    Copy Media Files to USB
    Upgrade Windows XP Machine
  • 19. Conclusion
    Did We Bust the Myth?!?!?
    Would you even want to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 using the setup.exe anyway?
    MDT 2010 Is a Great Tool to Use for Windows Deployments
