WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint 2010 Migration

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
First thing I looked for was any previous help on this problem.

Came across this ticket.

I was hoping to avoid using a MOSS 2007 server but the only other option is to purchase migration software. I also tried Xavor's free software tool but it doesn't connect to 2010 properly at the moment.

So I tried the instructions from the EE link above but they are a bit vague and don't appear to work.

I installed Server 2003 and MOSS 2007 on a new VMWARE instance, I backed up the WSS_Content SQL database and restored it on the MOSS 2007 server but the content doesn't load. I just get the default start page.

I need some more assistance with this in order to complete our Sharepoint 2010 migration.
