Re: reinstallation after hardware changes
Hi,

There is no repair install option like there was with XP, so you cannot
recover the original installation. Problem #2 is that in order to transfer
the programs using the Easy Transfer Companion, you would need to be working
within that original installation. While you can take ownership of the older
system folders and access and retrieve data files, your programs will need
to be reinstalled from their original installation media.
