Hey all, first-time poster here.
So I have an old PC running a dreadful all-in-one PC with a Pentium sandy bridge, and my goal is to move it to a much better PC sitting in the dust, a desktop with a Phenom X6.
This is one of my biggest problem/ issues when I do anything with this PC:
The old PC (the AIO) currently is used as a server and point-of-sale for a Microsoft Access based sales system. It shares this server with another PC with window's built-in network share feature. It must retain its original network name (HP-02) or else nothing can access the server.
Here's my current solution:
1. Backing up the SSD of the AIO to another spare drive by using Macrium Reflect to create an image of the disk in case all goes wrong
2. Run SYSPREP and hope I can find all the drivers to the scanners
(2b). If it is better to not run Sysprep, I will skip this.
3. Take the SSD out and pop it in the desktop, install drivers if necessary
How can I ensure the network name for the AIO pc be carried over to the new PC? And is this the best way to carry this out.
Thank you all in advance
