when i said everything, i meant the general stuff (files, settings, stuff on desktop, etc.) and i have authentic copies of windows on both computers. also, creating an image of te old is a BIG NO NO, the specs are very different, my comuter would read everything like the old one. but, i will try what you said to try. thanks!
OK, was not quite clear of your intentions. Sure, don't do a backup or create an image, just reload all programs, set up a network (either direct cable or wiith a router) and copy away.
