    Files and Transfer Wizard from XP to Vista

    Interesting question for you all....

    I have XP Pro...., and I also have a brand new copy of Vista that I wouls
    like to install on my PC as a "clean" install....

    Would it be possible to use the FILES AND TRANSFER WIZARD on my XP Pro to
    gather all my settings, files etc...., then flatten the PC and put a clean
    install of Vista Business and (somehow...?) use the FILES AND TRANSFER
    WIZARD on Vista to restore it all....?

    Thanks in advance....

    Hi,

    Yes it's possible but you have to use tool from Vista CD - is on start
    screen when you put in CD to the drive
