While I wait for the new pc to arrive I'm playing a bit on different options on how to avoid installing EVERYTHING! from scratch again, I know, I know.. it's the best way (or the only way some might say)
So I'm installing W10 as a dual boot on the current pc to see if I can then bring everything in from a windows7 backup or use something like the Samsung migration tool software but we'll see...
Anybody has any suggestions???? (excluding clean installs) I have som old software that I don't have the original media anymore.

. . . good luck

Last time I looked, there is no tool that lets you migrate your programs from one version OS to another.
. . . data, yes . . . programs, no

I have a program that backups the whole system. You have to use a second hard drive, or an external hard drive. Called REDO backup. Its fast and easy to use. Havent had any problem with it. I tried the windows backup several times and it sux. Try REDO. You put it on a CD and boot with it, than backup. when you want to restore to the backup click restore. Works great.

I'm not seeing where redobackup.org lets you migrate your programs from one OS to a different one, like Win7 to Win10

Windows backup sux,
it doesn't move programs either, just data and settings.

backup
REDO does a complete backup of your computer, system and all files. When you do a restore it is just as it was when you backed up. Actually its an image of your hard drive.

back up tool
The way I used it was, backed up my win 7 to a second hard drive. Then I installed win 10. Didn't like 10. So I restored the backup
using REDO. It automatically overwrites everything that 10 installed.

I historically use GHOST for an image backup & restore.

Still, no help to go from one version OS to a different version OS.

One problem with most all image backup & restore programs, even with the same OS, the factory restore partition on the HD is not usable after the restore . . . like when going from a rotating drive to a SSD.

restore
as usual on RR always the negative point of view comes out. Just trying to help the guy. I have heard bad things on duel boot with win 10. Perhaps your right about the partition problem, wouldn't know as mine was a complete build not a factory supplied. I did go from a rotating hard drive to a SSD and back and forth with REDO with no problem. Have used GHOST and it's old and a PIA.

Restore to dis-similar hardware has always been an interest and issue with me. Many companies say they can do it but once I dig into it, it does not live up to advertisements.

If you call that a "negative point of view" then I guess you don't like the full story.

. . . and GHOST does a great job, it just doesn't handle 4K sectors.

Well, the new PC is up and running, I decided to install from scratch and avoid carrying any problems now the tough decision... should I stick to W7 or go to 10...
There are so many confronted opinions on this...
It's mainly a gaming PC so W10 makes sense but there are also people stating that it does not represent any real benefits as it was thought...

The reason Microsoft is pushing Win10 so hard, to the point of giving it away for free) is that they are planning on the same operation system base across all platforms (phones, pads, game boxes and pc,s) so app writers will be working on only one version of the OS and they can join the "app store" game like Apple & Google.

Microsoft has been trying to get to one platform code base for more than 20 years. Are they finally there ?

Of course in the process, like Microsoft has allways done, you have to climb another learning curve for the new OS.

Based on histoy of only every other OS being any good, Win10 should be worth the effort. Especially if you're starting out fresh on a new install.

Win95 - bad
Win98 - good
WinME - bad
WinXP - good
Vista - bad
Win7 - good
Win8 - bad
Win10 - ?
