    Tranfer files and system set up from an old computer with the same operating system and...


    Good day,

    So we have a new HP all in One that is for the company. We also have an old system which is similar. Both systems have the Windows 10 Home on them. We are trying to eliminate hiring an outside person to come in and set up the system. Can we just simply transfer the set up and data files from the old system to the new system?? Help Please. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Error: "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system"

    Hi Stephen,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the operating system. Now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

    Do let us know if you are able to see Windows 7/ Windows 10 operating system while rebooting the device?

    As you are unable to boot the operating system, this issue might have occurred when the boot files are missing or corrupted.

    I suggest you re-built the boot rec by following the below commands and check if it helps.
    You will have to use Windows 10/7 installation media to follow the steps to boot into Recovery Environment and try to rebuild BCD.

    Step 1: I suggest you to create an installation media for
    operating system using the media creation tool

    If system boots to Windows 10:
    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool


    If system boots to Windows 7: Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files)

    Step 2: After preparing the installation media, insert it hard reboot the device and follow the below:

    • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment using the Windows 10/7 installation media.
    • Click on Repair your computer.
    • Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options.
    • Select Command Prompt. Type the following commands into the prompt and press Enter key after each command.
    • bootrec /fixmbr

    • bootrec /fixboot

    • bootrec /scanos

    • bootrec /rebuildbcd
    5. Restart the computer.

    NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting
    from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of booting the operating system for further assistance.

    Thank you.
