2 Based on this book

3 Ch 1 Install, Migrate, or Upgrade to Windows 7

4 Lesson 1: Installing Windows 7 Windows 7 Editions Windows 7 Hardware Requirements Preparing the Windows 7 Installation Source Installing Windows 7

5 Editions There are six different Windows 7 editions – Starter – Home Basic – Home Premium – Professional – Enterprise – Ultimate

6 Windows Versions Link TestPrep Ch 1a is wrong about Starter, even though it is from Microsoft TestPrep Ch 1b is better Home Basic is for developing markets, not the USA

7 Starter 32-bit only, only 1 processor Can't play DVDs Can't create HomeGroups No Location Sensors No Windows Media Center Can't join a domain No Aero No multiple monitors

8 Home Basic Only in emerging markets 32 & 64-bit versions, only 1 processor Max. 4 GB RAM on 32-bit Max. 8 GB RAM on 64-bit No Aero or DVD playback Can't join a domain No EFS

9 Multicore Processors All 32-bit versions support up to 32 processor cores All 64-bit versions support up to 256 processor cores

10 Home Premium Only 1 processor Max. RAM: 4 GB for 32-bit, 16 GB for 64-bit Can burn & play DVDs Can create HomeGroups Can't join a domain Cannot provide Remote Desktop service No Win XP Mode No Group Policy, EFS, or Offline Folders

11 Professional 1 or 2 processors Max. RAM: 4 GB for 32-bit, 192 GB for 64-bit Aero Can join a domain Win XP Mode No Language Packs No BitLocker Network backup Group Policy, EFS, and Offline Folders No BranchCache or DirectAccess

12 Enterprise/Ultimate 1 or 2 processors Max. RAM: 4 GB for 32-bit, 192 GB for 64-bit Language Packs BitLocker BranchCache Boot from VHD DirectAccess

13 Hardware Requirements Starter: 512 MB RAM All others: 1 GB of RAM – Some sources say 2 GB RAM for 64-bit versions

14 Installation Source DVD USB drive (>= 4 GB), FAT32, Active Network share (must boot target PCs to PE, with USB or DVDs) Windows Deployment Service (WDS) – Requires a Server 2008 domain – Multicast – Target PCs boot PXE or a Windows Discover Image – Server has the install.wim file

15 Installing Win 7 Standard Installation Unattended Installation – Unattend.xml file on USB drive Can install Enterprise or Ultimate to VHD Booting from VHD is only possible if boot loader is Win 7 or Server 2008 R2


17 Lesson 2: Upgrading to Windows 7 Upgrading from Windows 7 Editions Upgrading from Windows Vista Migrating from Windows XP

18 Upgrade v. Migration Upgrade – Vista SP1 -> Win 7 (equal or higher edition) – Lower edition of Win 7 -> Higher Win 7 Edition – Can roll back to Vista until first logon to Win 7 Migration – You cannot upgrade from x86 to 64-bit – You cannot upgrade from Win XP to Win 7 – Those are wipe-and-load migration tasks instead – Cannot be rolled back

19 Upgrade Media Use installation media – DVD, USB, Network share Windows Anytime Upgrade – No media needed Windows Upgrade Advisor

20 Migrating from Windows XP Side-by-side migration – Move user data from one computer to another – Or from one partition to another Wipe-and-load migration – Export user data to an external storage device – Clean install – Import user data

21 Lesson 3: Managing User Profiles Migrating User Profile Data Windows Easy Transfer User State Migration Tool

22 Viewing Profiles Control Panel System Advanced System Settings Settings button in User Profiles section – Local v. Roaming Profiles

23 Windows Easy Transfer Transfers user data in three ways – Easy Transfer Cable – Network – External hard disk or USB flash drive Start on the new computer, with Win 7 – Select "This is my new computer" – It will offer to install Easy Transfer on the old computer (you need the Win 7 version)

24 User State Migration Tool Command-line tool Part of WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit) Can write data to removable USB storage or a network share – Does not support side-by-side migration Two steps – Export profile data with ScanState – Import data with LoadState

25 USMT Features USMT does capture – User accounts, user files, OS settings, and application settings Migrates ACLs USMT does not capture – Mapped drives, local printers, device drivers, passwords, shared folder permissions, or Internet Connection Sharing settings

26 USMT and Downgrades USMT can move data – Win XP -> Win 7 – Vista -> Win 7 – Win 7 -> Win 7 – Win 7 -> Vista USMT can not move data – Win 7 -> Win XP

27 USMT's 4 XML Files MigApp.xml MigUser.xml

28 USMT's 4 XML Files MigApp.xml – Rules about migrating application settings – Favorites, fonts, Outlook Express email, mouse and keyboard settings, wallpaper, etc. – You must add custom XML files to migrate some custom applications

29 USMT's 4 XML Files MigUser.xml – Rules about user profiles and user data – My Documents, My Music, Start Menu, Favorites, Shared Documents, etc. – Document files on all fixed volumes, including.doc,.xls,.ppt,.rtf, etc.

30 USMT's 4 XML Files MigDocs.xml – Information on the location of user documents Config.xml – Used to exclude files from migration – Create and modify config.xml with scanstate.exe /genconfig

31 Rerouting Files and Settings Sends files from a folder to a different folder on the target machine – Or select files by file type – Or specify a specific file Create custom xml file Specify the custom file in command-line parameters in scanstate and loadstate

32 Scanstate Command line Create an encrypted store named MyStore on rhe server named Fileserver that uses the encryption key Mykey: – scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:migapp.xml /i:miguser.xml /o /config:config.xml /encrypt /key:"mykey"

33 LoadState Command Line Install all applications first – loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:migapp.xml /i:mig user.xml /decrypt /key:"mykey"

34 3 Migration Store Types Uncompressed – Duplicates files and folder – Can be navigated with Windows Explorer Compressed – Single image file, can be encrypted – Cannot be navigated with Windows Explorer Hard Link – Used only on wipe-and-load migration – Maintains the original user data on the drive through the wipe-and-load proess

35 Offline Migrations – Boot to Windows PE with USMT – Run Scanstate – Can be done without Administrator access – BitLocker must be suspended during this process You still need to run LoadState from within Win 7 on the new computer
