1. Build a new PC (everything except the H/Drives).
2. Install old h/drives loaded with windows XP Pro (h/d drive is partioned).
3. Install Windows 7 on the h/drive free partioned space so I end up with both XP and W7.
Is it worth me doing this or just running W7 Pro on the new pc. (includes XP compatability).
The reason I am stuck is: I have a lot of files and need a way of getting them onto the new op system (cannot make back ups onto CD's as there is too much.
Appreiate any advice that you can give or if anyone has done this before.
