Moving From Sp To Sp2 And Need Some Help


Recommended Posts


My company wanted to try out the SP in our business environment so I volunteered.  I have been using a SP fro about 2 months and really love the device. My company has now decided to make a bigger commitment and is rolling out SP2s.

My question is how do I transfer my apps and contents to my new device.  I understand the contents on SkyDrive will not be an issue, but what about the contents installed on the local device.


Thanks in advance

You should take a look at Windows Easy Transfer (by default in Windows 8) if it can help you.

You can also take a look at USMT, here is an explanation about it : http://blogs.technet.com/b/nepapfe/archive/2013/04/15/using-usmt-v-5-to-migrate-your-profile-data-apps-amp-profile-settings.aspx


I hope this will help you.

      Hi all,
      I recently installed the HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 3 version 650.U3.9.6.8 released on June 2019 and based on VMware ESXi 6.5.0 Update 3. I think this is pregen version from HP.
      I have a P222 Raid Card installed. ESXI does this RAID card. However its not presenting the disk connected to it to me.

      When I go to datastore - I can see only one datastore - which is the datastore esxi is installed and which i use to save my VM's

      I can see the HPE SMART ARRAY P222 storage card - but none of the HDD's/ or the datastore
      What am I doing wrong?

      Im not sure really where to go and was hoping for some help on pricing if its allowed here.
      i have a gen8 HP proliant micro server. im looking at selling it for a few reasons. i need the money for kids medical bills, and i was under utilising its capabilities, so therefore it was overkill for what i needed. ive had a look an completed listings on ebay and with such a big range in pricing,  im hoping some people here that live and breathe these machines could give me some advice.
      ive removed the celeron it had when i bought it and it is now running a Xeon E3-1265L V2
      16GB RAM (Kingston KTH-PL316E/8G)
      has a AMD 6450(from memory) GPU. (was able to out put video from my windows 10 HTPC VM to my TV)
      8GB USB drive internally for ESXi 6
      a Seagate Barracuda 3TB
      a WD Red 2TB
      and Kingston SSDnow V+ 120GB SSD
      i had one of the drives setup as storage for server 2012 VM
      the other as storage for the windows 10 HTPC
      and the SSD to have the OS Partitions as well as SOPHOS firewall.
      it didnt get a tonne of usage and has been out of commission for over a year now.
      ive recently fired it all back up and cleaned the VMS out and formatted the drives with 7x pass drive eraser.
      can anyone give me some help with a value or price point on this thing?
      thanks in advance.

      So yesterday i dropped my surface on tile flooring. When i picked it up i just clicked the home button to see if it still turned on, it did. However when i got home later i noticed it had a huge hair line crack. When i turned it back on , it sent me to my lock screen and the screen was completely unresponsive. i called microsoft didnt have the warranty so im stuck. i was wondering if i could just buy a case with a keyboard, but i know it may require bluetooth which i cant get to because im on the lock screen. I'm making a last ditch effort is it worth it?

      I just updated my surface to windows 8.1 and I can no long stream videos from Xbox video app all it says is can't. Play either windows doesn't support the items file format or the content doesn't match the extension in the file name. Been looking for answers not really sure what to do to fix it just thinking about going back to windows 8

      I do a lot of off table work on my Surface Pro 2, and I miss the 'fixed' hinge on a laptop that keeps the keyboard and surface at a consistent angle.  Has anyone seen a hardshell case or other type of solution for this?
