Want To Rebuild My Win7 Boot Camp System From Scratch!
My Win7 64 system and Mac Pro are eight years old (3,1 early 2008). Mac upgrades includes 14 gigs ram, HD 5770 video card, 2560x1440 monitor, USB 3.
Win7 has gotten an Upgrade Install maybe 3 times to clean up system files.
But time for a full refresh in which I will trash a lot of stuff I no longer use.
Have 100 plus Apps and thousands of files, folders.
Want to know the best way to approach the rebuild. I have a number of hard drives including 2 HD caddies.
I will start with a fresh HD and want to move my data over to new system over a few days.
Can I put a New parallel Win7 system into Boot Camp (OS 10.11), basically creating a triple boot, and access my Old HD and files from the new system... and once the new system is ready to go dump the old one?
Back up the data from your Windows 7 system to an external drive. Then rebuild Windows 7 from the Windows 7 DVD. Make certain the DVD is SP1 or download SP1 and install it straightaway.
Then use the April 2016 Rollup to complete most of the updates. Then install applications and restore your data.
