The laptop on which I'm starting this thread is terminal. Each time I reboot, it takes longer and incomplete boots become more frequent. I don't think it will be long before it won't boot up at all. I've purchased a new Dell with Windows 7 in hopes of transferring everything from this one to the new one before this one ends up in Boot Hill.
My question: If you were about to do this and the terminal laptop were still functional (only the boot speed is affected. Once booted, speed is completely normal.) what steps exactly (I mean really dumb it down) would you take to make the transition as seamless and easy as possible? I have tons of blank DVD + R discs on which to record backup but I would have to be walked through the process, from backing up the files to entering the discs into the new laptop. In short, I would like to know, from beginning to end, exactly what you would do to make the transition as smooth as possible and transferring as much info as possible. Thanks.
