Windows 7 Upgrades Things not to do.

December 11th, 2009 | by Admin |

Spent the week upgrading an office from XP to Windows 7.  Everything worked after the upgrade, but I found that if you are upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 it will go fast.  If you are moving from Windows XP to Windows 7 you have your work cut out for you.  I used the file transfer wizard to backup the xp files and then during the upgrade I used the same user name that was on the old PC, but that name was part of the Domain, so when I joined the PC to the Domain and logged in it created a second user name with the domain name at the end. So when I ran the file transfer back onto the pc, it put the files in the wrong location.  So when upgrading and starting the install, when working with a domain, use a PC name not a user when it ask for a name.
