As with a Windows NT 4. Upgrading a computer running Windows Me is similar. Perform the following steps:. Windows creates a Documents and Settings folder with subfolders for each user who has logged on to the computer. Many problems that occur during upgrading an older Windows installation are similar to those you might encounter when installing Windows XP for the first time, as discussed in Chapter 2.
You may also encounter one of the following problems:. These files enable you to later revert to the previous operating system if desired. Simply delete these shortcuts if this happens. If you have upgraded from Windows 98 or Windows Me and think you may want to revert to your previous operating system, do not convert your hard disk to the NTFS file system, or upgrade the disk to dynamic storage. If you do, the option to uninstall Windows XP is no longer available.
To delete the older OS files, follow the first three steps of this procedure, and then select the Remove the Backup of My Previous Operating System option, and click Continue. I would like to receive exclusive offers and hear about products from InformIT and its family of brands.

This chapter covers how to perform an upgrade Windows XP installation, in which Windows XP replaces a previous Windows OS without first removing all data from the system drive and starting from scratch. This option is most useful in cases where you have customized user settings that you want to preserve.
Setup next copies installation files and restarts the computer. Windows XP Setup proceeds in similar fashion to that described in Chapter 1, but only asks for any information it cannot retrieve from the previous Windows installation. After installation has completed and the computer has rebooted, the Welcome to Microsoft Windows screen appears.
Click Next and follow the instructions provided, and provide a password when requested. You can create a dual-boot system instead of upgrading If you select New Installation Advanced in step 3 of Step by Step 3. Doing so creates a dual-boot system, which enables you to start either operating system. You can select the operating system to start from the boot loader menu, which is displayed by the Boot. If you are considering a dual-boot system, you should be aware of several facts.
First, ensure that you are using the proper file system on your partitions. When dual-booting with Windows 9x or Me, you should ensure that the system partition is formatted with FAT If you are dual-booting with Windows NT 4. In addition, you should be aware that the oldest operating system should be installed first.
The uninstallation process restores your previous operating system without changing any files you have created while running Windows XP. However, applications that were installed or modified while Windows XP was running may need to be reinstalled afterward.
Click Continue to proceed. Another message box confirms that you want to restore the previous operating system. Windows shuts down and the uninstall proceeds. This process takes several minutes. During the uninstall process, you are informed that if you installed programs after upgrading to Windows XP, you may need to reinstall them. When the uninstall process is complete, the computer reboots again and restores Windows 98 or Windows Me. Uninstall is available only if you have upgraded from Windows 98 or Windows Me You cannot revert to your previous operating system if you have upgraded from Windows NT 4.
You have available the installation media for Windows XP Professional as well as the older operating systems currently in use on these computers. In addition, all servers have already been upgraded to Windows Server Your task is to upgrade all these computers to Windows XP Professional by performing as few steps as possible.
If possible, you must not remove any user settings, data, or applications from any of these computers. Draw up a plan for upgrading these computers while adhering to these specifications. Try to complete this exercise on your own, listing your conclusions on a sheet of paper. After you have completed the exercise, compare your results to those given here.

Windows XP Professional includes the following two tools that assist administrators and users in migrating application settings and data files to a new computer running Windows XP. Files and Settings Transfer Wizard —Designed for users in home or small business environments that need to migrate files and settings on a small number of computers.
Know that USMT can be scripted for migrating large numbers of computers and that the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard is more suited for individual users migrating their data to a new computer. The USMT enables you to quickly and easily transfer user files and settings when deploying new computers to a large number of users. This tool reduces the cost of computer deployments by addressing the following issues:.
USMT consists of two executable files, Scanstate. USMT also migrates settings found in settings groups such as Internet Explorer, Outlook and Outlook Express, dial-up connections, phone and modem options, accessibility settings, screen savers, fonts, folder options, network drives and printers, and other Control Panel settings such as sounds, mouse, keyboard, taskbar, and regional settings.
You can modify the set of data collected by USMT by editing the information found in the. Then you run Loadstate. You can employ a script to automate this process when migrating multiple users. Preparation of the server involves the creation and sharing of several folders. Follow Step by Step 3. At the server, create and share a folder named USMT. Configure this folder with the Read permission for the migrating user and at least the Change permission for the local administrator at the destination computer.
Create and share a folder named MigStore. Configure this folder with the Change permission for both the migrating user and the local administrator at the destination computer. Copy Scanstate. Copy Loadstate. Having prepared the server for the transfer process, you can now scan source computers to collect their data and settings.
Now you can place the collected information on the destination computer by following the procedure outlined in Step by Step 3. Log on to the destination computer as the local administrator. A standard user cannot run the Loadstate tool, as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article Verify that the files and settings have been transferred properly. The classic desktop should appear because the old user shell is contained in the settings transferred by USMT.
Additional parameters available with Loadstate and Scanstate Loadstate. The Files and Settings Transfer Wizard enables you to transfer files, folders, and settings belonging to a user to a new computer or an existing computer on which a clean installation of Windows XP Professional exists.
It is a simple means of transferring these settings when only a few computers are involved, or when users are individually responsible for migrating information to a new computer. It is automatically installed on Windows XP Professional computers during operating system installation.
This wizard operates by creating a Migration Wizard Program disk, using this disk to prepare data on the source old computer for transfer, and then transferring them to the destination new computer. To perform this procedure, you need to have the following items available:. Removable media such as CD-R disks to store the migrated information. You can also use a shared folder on a server or a serial cable to connect the two computers directly. To run the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, you start the wizard at the destination computer and create a wizard floppy disk.
Then you take this disk to the source computer and migrate the data to removable media or a shared folder. Finally, you return to the destination computer and import the migrated data. The wizard asks whether you are at the new computer or the old one. Ensure that the New Computer option is selected, and then click Next. To create a floppy disk for running the wizard on the source computer, select the I Want to Create a Wizard Disk in the Following Drive option, and select the drive letter of your floppy drive.
See Figure 3. Insert a blank, formatted floppy into the selected drive, and then click OK. When this step is completed, the wizard instructs you to go to the old computer. Leave this screen of the wizard visible on the new computer. Go to the source old computer, insert the floppy disk, and type a:fastwiz in the Run dialog box.
The wizard copies files and displays the welcome screen. Select the media type being used for the transfer, and then click Next to display the What Do You Want to Transfer screen. Select the types of data files, settings, or both to be transferred. As shown in Figure 3.
The wizard collects the information to be transferred. When data collection is complete, it displays a message box asking for the first disk. If using removable media such as recordable CDs or Zip disks, insert the first disk and then click Next.
The wizard transfers information to the media and asks for additional disks as required.

However, the consequences are that the Windows will require at least MB of free disk space, 32 MB of system memory and laptop will end up getting slow, pretty fast after installing updates and software on the laptop. You will also need to get the largest hard drive possible that will work properly with the Tecra CDT. I forget to mention in this thread that the official KB numbers are KB for. There is no KB number for. I agree. As for installing unofficial updates after applying all of the available updates for Windows , you should be careful how the updates are applied.
The one thing is that after a couple of months after I applied UURollup v10c, I was very lucky to only apply. There are chances that some of the critical files that were applied from UURollup will end up being overwritten with official files from the updates that came from the Windows Update website and the risk are that serious problems with Windows may occur thus prompting a re-installation of the OS from scratch.
All of the updates that I downloaded have preserved the original timestamp. An extension that preserved the modification timestamp that is sent by the server for downloaded files. I suppose you mean "this topic", don't you? How about adding "Professional" at the end of the title you can edit it when using the full editor? I used the same extension when downloading updates which are available in the Archive. That's why timestamps of most of them are preserved.
That's correct. I updated the forum thread as well as the link mentioning the correct KB article for. That is so absolutely right! I'm gonna try to provide more information on how the directories will look like. I also believe that there needs to be a script to manually apply the updates via a batch file.
I cannot test it on the host machine as it will screw up the two year old Win2k installation, but I can try to run it on a test Win2k install. The size of the temporary directory is MB and it has updated files in 52 folders. First of all, thanks for this guide. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place here. I just can't get Windows Update to work after following this guide. All of the steps seem to work correctly, but when I open Windows Update, it gets to the point where it asks if I want to do an Express or Custom update, and when I click either one, it gives me an an error saying "Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer", and a link to reinstall said files which also doesn't work.
I've gone through this guide four times, reinstalling Windows each time, to no avail. I have also followed the "If Windows Update fails to operate correctly" instructions each time, and no dice. I've also tried are clicking the link to upgrade to Microsoft Update; it just gives me the same error. Install Update Rollup 1 v2.
Download and install WinZip. Download and install 7-Zip. Download WUAv Download 7za Ditto for wGet 1. Run WUAv Rename WindowsUpdateAgentx EXE and run it. Download and extract rootsupd Install rootsupd. Run Windows Update. Anything wrong there? I assume nothing has to be put in a specific directory because the OP didn't specifically say so.
When it says to extract something to "the WUA directory", does that mean an arbitrary directory you make yourself just to help organize the files, or is there an actual WUA directory somewhere that these files are supposed to go in? EXE to install And why do you have to rename it, anyway? Is Windows Update simply completely dead for Windows , now? It seems this thread has been dormant since November, but I would hope someone before me would touch on that if they discovered that to be the case.
Anyway, I hope someone is able to either figure out something I'm doing wrong or determine that it just doesn't work any more. I've never participated in these forums before - I've made my account simply so I can post here and try to get to the bottom of this. Not sure about the "why rename" but irrelevant. Please report back. I followed it all the way through with a new Windows SP4 install and it worked perfectly.
The only thing I did differently was installing Update Rollup 1 version 2 for Windows Service Pack 4 before anything else, although I don't think that will make any difference. In the end it shouldn't matter though That was the ticket! Thank you very much! I don't know why my situation wouldn't work with simply running WUA.

Posted November 3, Posted November 3, edited. Just a few points: The updates mentioned in the guide are only the ones for Windows Professional.
It's not really a major issue but the topic states "Guide to Installing and Updating Windows " so that's why I'm writing about it. That's why it's better to prepare an updated source before the actual system installation my personal opinion.
Yes, it does also take some time to prepare everything for slipstreaming but once it's ready you can just run HFSLIP and wait until it's finished. Installing the system after that is a matter of minutes 10 minutes on my computer when the installation is executed from HDD but excluding. NET Framework.

Posted June 27, InsaneNutter 0 Posted June 27, Just wanted to say thanks very much for this great guide! I followed it all the way through with a new Windows SP4 install and it worked perfectly The only thing I did differently was installing Update Rollup 1 version 2 for Windows Service Pack 4 before anything else, although I don't think that will make any difference. Thanks for the great, detailed work you have put in to this. Posted June 28, I have the answer of question number two myself But I just want to know what you people think out there I've heard of success stories with upgrades, but then I've heard of failures, too.
It's almost always advisable just to reformat and reinstall if you're changing OSes. I would agree with alc I personally recommend that you get XP. I have recently had mayor problems on another one of my computers of windows not installing correctly until i picked the longer version of the format. I have updated from windows professional to XP professional. I faced problem with my modem.
I understand one must unstall modem driver as well as physically remove Modem from the computer before installing XP. I ignored this and therefore facing problem. I repeat, you must uninstall modem and remove it physically. Also read other XP installation problems on Microsoft site. This problem is not reported for clean install. If you don't follow above procedure, Windows automatically detects Modem drivers which gets corrupted during installation and loads them.
They cannot be removed using Device Manager or Uninstalling Modem options. Reinstalling XP again may be an option? I have not tried. Buy a new modem expensive! Any other solution? The latest can still present bugs.
You may not like the new one. There is going to be a learing curve. Again, just a personal preference, I like better than XP and already know its quirks and how to use it.
