These are very useful and short videos that walk you through a potentially important aspect of your Windows 7 deployment: the migration from Windows XP.

 

In Part 1 of Window XP to Windows 7 Migration Using MDT 2010: Building the Deployment Environment (9 minutes, 56 seconds), you’ll learn how to build media that will automatically migrate computers from Windows XP to Windows 7 with user data, custom applications and drivers. This demonstration covers the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) Deployment Workbench and how it works.

 

In Part 2 of Windows XP to Windows 7 Migration Using MDT 2010: Initiating the Install and Migrating the PC  (9 minutes, 33 seconds), you will explore the user experience for migrating the Windows XP computer to Windows 7 and how brief – or “lite touch” – interaction is required up front to automate the entire process of data migration, OS installation, driver and application customization, and domain join.

 

More to come,
