Failed motherboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • My desktop (XP pro) with 2 HDs failed to find either drive.  Both are backed up to WHS.  All programs on Drive A; most data on Drive B.  I determined motherboard failure and bought new desktop with 2 HDs (W7 Ultimate).  Is there any software or methodology I can use to restore programs from WHS to the new W7 environment?
    I can reinstall the programs but would love to avoid the hours (days) that it will take to accomplish.

  • Perhaps for programs that do not write entries to the registry, but there are very few that do not; most do. There is no way around this. Bite the bullet and reinstall the programs; you'll not regret it.
