I am upgrading a Windows XP (32-bit) machine and a Windows Vista (32-bit) machine to Windows 7 (32-bit). The most important files and accounts are on the Windows XP machine.
What I would like to do is the following:
- backup the XP machine using Windows Easy Transfer
- upgrade the Windows Vista machine to a fresh install of Windows 7
- install the XP backup on the Vista machine and see if everything is working
Is this possible? I would have thought its possible as once the Vista machine is upgraded to Windows 7 it should be the same as if I had upgraded the XP machine, but I don't want to waste my time if its not.
