I just completed the Migration portion of the training. I need to re-install Windows 7 on a laptop. I don't have another computer to use to transfer my profile to. Can I transfer my profile just to an external hard drive, re-install Window 7 then bring my profile back in from the external hard drive?
Migrating a Profile
Yes, you can...remember that profile doesn't store applications though.
So you would need to wipe clean the drive
Install the Windows 7 OS, activate, update
Install all applications that you had in the previous installed OS
Then you can use either Windows Easy Transfer or USMT for your version of Windows 7 to reload your user profile
