My situation is, that I do not like Windows 7! I have an old Sony Vaio with Xp 32-bit, which has been a good servant despite inflicting lots of abuse on it. But the time comes when I expect it to fail.
In anticipation I have a Dell ZinoHD, which has Windows 7 64-bit!
Using Acronis True Image 10, is it possible to copy the (external) backup of the Sony to the Dell? I did try it but the screen went blank and I had to re-nstall the Windows 7.
Or, can I (temporarily) install a new XP system (different Operating System)and THEN copy the Sony external backup onto the Dell!
Thanks in advance but, please, do not laud the Windows 7, it just does not suit my taste, I have tried!
