Old windows 7 installation merging to new one by ClaraBaffingdock.cda - Sun, 26 Nov 2017 22:57:22 EST ID:notOZan7 No.121449 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey /tech/, I have a rather perplexing problem on my hands, and I'd figured i'd ask you guys here since you've rarely let me down; Is there a way to merge all my programs, settings, registry settings, files, and basically everything from an old windows installation to a new one that was installed on the same disk that the old installation is on?

I have a folder on my new OS install called "Windows.Old, which is basically my old setup but I have a feeling that if I try to move that folder to my new one it will not have the same effect as a full migration.

So what I'm asking here is this: Is there ANY software that will allow me to perform this kind of operation or am I just stuck with a fragmented set of my shit from both installations? Has anyone had this problem before, and if you have, what have you heard about it?

The windows.old folder is a backup folder for windows 10 upgrades that allows you to roll back the installation in case you recieved a major update or you have upgraded to Windows 10.
The folder is basically a backup of that earlier Windows build or installation.

If you have Win7, and want to reinstall Win7, you can export any registry changes via regedit > File > Export...
This wil generate a .reg file with the selected registry folders, keys and values that can be installed on the new install.
You cannot select multiple items in regedit, so make a.reg from each of the HKEY folders if you want a full backup

Files can always be backed up to another drive or USB stick.

If you have Win10 and want to reinstall Win7, you can and should only move the files.

For some programs (eg. Steam games), you can copy the files and folders to another drive or partition, and then re-add the given folder in the program. After some verification, the games will usually work again

Copying settings varies from program to program

There are a few limitations of the easy transfer,

Actually more than a few. It is designed merely for transferring, an install to another hard drive, or another computer. It cannot be upgraded from, say win 7 premium to ultimate. The .old file will not work this way.

My guess is person installed windows within windows. no mention of what the old windows was.

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/recover-personal-files-from-windows-old-in-windows-8/ Same principal I assume.

win.old is created when there is an existing windows already installed. Or like 7 8 to 10, upgrade, where again, there was already a windows version already installed.

Not enough information.

I recently had to move cross country and to stay under max luggage weight I took my PC apart and took it on my carry on.

I put it back together but now its not producing any video.
It's starting up fine but doesn't send video signal regardless of what monitor or cable I try.
The fan on the video card does startup for like 5 seconds when you turn the system on then it stops, so I know it's getting some power.
It seems that I might've connected the cables wrong because I don't knowcable im doing.
It's the 2014 asud essentio series.
I'm gonna post a few pics in hopes that someone spots my error.
Thanks for any help and SLAYER to you all

That small 4 pin power connector you're holding is just for floppy drives.

Does the system make any beeps when turned on? Most motherboards will give an audible error if no functioning display device is found during start up. You did try the on-board video as well right?

It doesn't make any noises other than the whirr of the components turning on.
Yes I tried the on on board video card too, as well as multiple monitors and both hdmi and dsub.
What really trips me out is that the video card appears to turn on for about 5 seconds on power up, then stops.
Same with the front facing and on board usb outlets....

Nothing should be tripping you out because you don't know how any of this works. Disconnect everything so you can reseat the connections. Try to boot with just the CPU and RAM.

So you visit a web page and what happens? An html page is rendered from the software environment of your OS which is generated by the hardware on your computer (this is where it gets foggy for me) the processor does something with the hard drive (ok what’s a motherboard it has to be doing something right?) yadda yadda logical circuits and bill gates’ your uncle and it all happens. Anyone board enough to explain this to me? Maybe shame me and point me towards some free educational material? In b4 Google it fgt.

Modern web browsers are essentially live interfaces which can be modified on-the-fly, even as you are reading a page.

The human mind is a reality rectification machine which will rationalise inconsistencies in its input if they appear in a blind spot, such as changes being made to a web page during a saccade: the constant instances of rapid eye movement during which you are effectively blind.

Webcams are omnipresent are perfectly suited for retinal tracking.

I have to use windows 10. It's a Surface Pro that I use for contract work. Anyway, I've been very happy with the EPIC Chromium browser so far, but it has essentially no supported addons and the https redirect function doesn't seem to work on many pages. For example, https everywhere used to always work on 420chan in Firefox, but SSL doesn't work with EPIC.

Is there any way (or any firewall you know of) that forces Windows 10 to only allow SSL connections for http traffic?

Also, I highly recommend EPIC as far as DNS leaks and free proxies go. Seems to work flawlessly so far with pretty good streaming speeds and no leaks from any flash /HTML5 / java shit.

You can use a firewall to block HTTP and maybe block all unencrypted traffic but it's going to look to your applications like a dead connection. Also, all privacy/security browsers except for TBB are for suckers. I don't know why you would run a proprietary Chromium build made by some Indian company, but I would highly recommend that you stop making recommendations.

Hey /tech/
I'll be taking my A+ Certification Tests here shortly, and I'm having a bit of test anxiety. I'm currently working a pretty crappy job and I have a promise of a better new job as soon as I'm certified, but the tests are expensive and I could really only scrape enough money together for one shot at the tests.

If any of you are A+ certified and have any advice or words of wisdom I would really appreciate it.

Not about AGCI but raid has generally been used for servers., production environments. When something is changed in the original drive, the others
would update om the fly.

The RAID setting enables AHCI, RAID, and RST. It does not imply that RAID is going to be used. Kind of a bizarre label consider what it does.

So my hard drive has been fucking up lately so I bought a new one and I'll need to do a fresh install of an OS, I've been using Windows 7 and I like it, but I was wondering if it's a good time to upgrade to Windows 10 yet? I haven't really been keeping up to date with changes they've been making, so if someone could tell me the benefits and the negatives of switching to W10 that'd be real good. Also is it still necessary to change settings to better your privacy while using Win10, if so can someone give me some hints on how to do that. Cheers!

My scheme is 35gigs for win7, not too many programs, 40 45 would likely be better. I always have at least 5 6 gigs of free space out of 35 gigs on C; <(haha) at any given time though. Plenty of basic programs installed.

2nd drive is for DVD,

Drive 3 E: for a linux distribution that is fairly minimal, minimal and bilild for there.
Simple but stable operating system. / is around 8 gigs, swap next partition is at
around just over twice the amount of installed ram. The rest of the space is /home.
The home is shared between the win 7 system, and linux for mostly storage. And if
windows linux or bothe goes south, the spare /home space will still hold all ones
information, music movies etc intact. Could backup a windows resore backup file
there as well.

Ext2Fsd is a nice program to share windows with linux filesystems,partitions.

I have install windows 10 here and there and recently more often. It actually seems to have it together like you should expect. I might decide to use it someday as a main system.

For now 7 works just fine.
