move vista drive to new computer
Posted on 2009-04-23
my desktop PC hardware failed recently, and rather than muck about replacing parts to find out what was wrong with it, I decided to just buy another computer and try swapping the drive.
not unexpected - the system disk will not boot in the new hardware, failing (crash/reset) on loading crcdisk.sys
So I've installed the disk as a secondary drive in the new PC, and can boot up from a new install of vista and can access the old drive fine.
So now I'm seeking advice on how to copy the settings and data from the old disk onto the new system... any suggestions and/or guidance is most welcome and appreciated!
