An Upgrade Path from XP to Windows 7 by Ben[_12_]
There is no direct upgrade path from XP to Windows 7 but users can use the User State Migration Tool (USMT) to migrate user data and settings. I wrote a piece about the upgrade, with an accompanying video, at: http://windows7reports.com/2010/11/09/migrate-win-xp-to-win7-using-usmt-user-state-migration-tool-pt-1/ However, what do you do if you have a site with hundreds of XP or Vista users? Is...

It is a single boot setup and not dual/triple boots as well. IIRC, this is what happened... I had slipstreamed Windows XP Pro.

OS on a logical drive by itself? by [email protected]
I've often heard that the OS should be on a drive (logical drive) by itself so that, when it gets a problem, you can just re-install a new copy of the OS on that drive. However, isn't the OS modified when you install programs? Where would you install them? Can someone explain the procedure for this and how it works? It has always confused me and, if if works as I understand, I'd like to try...
