Helping a friend who has a desktop system with Vista OS and the display died. Then each reboot attempt failed. He took out the hard drive and the graphics card to have them checked out. Graphics card is fine, hard drive is being checked.
Assuming they can get the hard drive fixed/working again; what is the best, safest way to migrate all user settings, etc., into a new HP system and not lose key settings. He's considering an HP system 500 with Windows 7 Professional (does NOT like W/8). Some time ago, used Windows Easy Transfer; is that the best way to go?
Thanks for your help.
