Believe me or not , i had 50 systems in my network to upgrade to windows 7 from windows xp and only thing i found easy and time saving is. MICROSOFT EASY TRANSFER. It works really good and quick. Good luck.

I mean if you have other Partitions you don't need to do any backup except the C Drive or OS WINDOWS partition. in microsoft easy transfer it takes minutes to do the backup. Try it.

Windows Easy Transfer works great for that, here is a link:

I used the backup to external option, but there are also transfer cables that you can buy.

You can simply insert the windows 7 CD and look for migwiz.exe in SUPPORT-->MIGWIZ directory.
