Migrating more than a handful of XP or Vista machines to Windows 7 manually is in impractical task, due to the time required to make all the individual configuration changes required to maintain a user’s desktop environment across the transition. SCCM can streamline the process, by helping you assess your pre-migration population and target the easiest systems to migrate first. SCCM can also detect problematic applications that may require Windows XP Mode, and can let you automate the most time-consuming reconfiguration tasks. This Tech Advisor, written by Mel Beckman, shows you the nuts and bolts of Windows 7 migration and how SCCM can help.
