    Migrating from Windows 10 to Windows 10


    Recently purchased a new desktop computer, with Windows 10 pre-installed. What is the best way to migrate my files from my old desktop, which was upgraded to Windows 10?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so i figured it out myself

    Found the logfile in "C:\Windows\Minidump".

    You need the Windows Development Kit to open it and a bit of googling to understand it.

    Found out that a Daemon driver caused an error. Removed Daemon but this didn't solve it. (ps: Daemon itself worked normally).

    I let hibernate my computer again and found another error with sptd2.sys: SCSI Pass Through Direct layer

    More google and ended up on the duplexsecure site. Downloaded the W10 version and voila: problem fixed.

    For the Windows support team: It would be really helpfull if you could pass problems to a more skilled helpdesk who can do more than proposing the standard solutions in case those won't work.

    Cheers

  3. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so I also found out that this occurs when sleepmode (for me after 3 hours) changes into hibernate mode.

    Seems like the going into hibernate and/or starting up from HIbernate results in a shutdown. In safeboot it works perfectly.

    Anyone any idea how I can figure out where it goes wrong. Is there a way to log this (I couldn't find it in bootlog)

    Yes, files like that, but also email (Outlook 10), and personalization, preferences, etc.

    Frankly, I'm a bit of a Luddite, and don't trust the cloud for storage of files that contain personal data, so I rarely use OneDrive or google, except to store raw forms without data.

    I'm thinking about using the local network for the transfer, but was hoping for some way to aggregate the relevant files for a simple transfer.

    Make an image of the old desktop OS partition using Macrium Reflect Free onto an external hard drive. Boot the new desktop from a Macrium Reflect rescue drive. Restore the old desktop OS partition over the top of the new desktop OS partition (might want to back that up first, as it's going to get erased.) Run the fix Windows startup utility in Macrium reflect. That way EVERYTHING would be transferred over.

    You could also physically move the old desktop hard drive to the new computer, connecting it as a second drive and set up dual booting.

    Thank you.

    I was hoping for something a little simpler, but since MS dropped the WET, we don't do anything nice and simple anymore.

    Just hook your old drive to the new system and copy away *Smile Do it in small batches and verify before moving on.

    Why would he want to put an old image over his brand new OS ?

    And he never mentioned anything about creating a dual boot.

    He just wants his data.

    Easy way to get all their programs, files and settings on the new computer. If it's the same version of Windows activation should be automatic.

    Thanks for continuing the discussion. I'm willing to reinstall all the major apps, in fact, I planned to, but what files in Outlook 10, for instance, do I need to grab for my email, contacts and calendar?
