I just keep thinkin!!! :wacko:

If I were to do a cable transfer using my usb transfer cable and two pc's both loaded with Win7 Home Premium. One brand new. Should I load the "other programs" (Windows Office etc.) on the new machine before I hook up and try the transfer?

With this last transfer that wasn't made clear. I went from XP Pro to Win 7 HP using an external HDD. I had to reconnect and run the xfer wizard twice to get all my email items transferred. Again after updating the Office package to SP3.

OK, my new 4G RAM stick is here. I want to load the Win7 HP OS upgrade tomorrow on the new Netbook (has Win 7 Starter). Can I use the files that I created with the Windows File Transfer Wizard and move all my documents and settings (clone this machine) or should I use a data transfer usb cable or just start from scratch?

Anyone know of any Pro's or Con's or Do's and Don'ts of each method.

I'm not entirely clear in what it is you're trying to do...

Can you try to better explain this?

netbook is really only meant to run win7 stater ,full version win7 will over tax the cpu ,and video device ,making them run hot and eventually cause problem,or so they say.
so running full version win7 is not recommended on your netbook

My answers are my opinion only,usually

I don't plan to "Game" on it. I have it loaded now and all seems well. This is primarily my "in transit" PC. I think it will be just fine. I actually think M$ should be embarrassed to release such crap as "Win 7 Starter". It is absolutely useless! (and isn't going to attract many folks to the full version!)

From what I have read, Win 7 Starter was basically MS`s answer to Linux which seemed to have the netbook market cornered.

As Caperjac said. Any other vers of 7 was to heavy on resources and would have proven a resource hog on most\all netbooks.
