I am using Windows 7 in my old machine. All my I user profiles store in another HDD and I use mklink/j to create a junction point to c:\users.
I bought a new machine with better performance and trying to "clone" everything from old machine to new machine.
I use clonezilla to image old machine's OS partition. I then apply the image to new machine by using sysprep, bootrect and I able to boot up Windows 7 on new machine. All programs and settings are there in new machine.
Next, I try to migrate the user profiles in separate HDD of old machine. The new machine can't recognize the user profiles from old machines after I use the same method to create junction point as old machine. When logon, I encounter "group policy client service failed to logon".
I attempt the "Windows Easy Transfer" from old machine but "Windows Easy Transfer" can't recognize the files from junction user profile".
The user profiles contains settings stores in registry and I don't want to lose it.
How may I migrate the user profile stored in junction point to new machine?
