Going from Windows XP to Windows 8.1

Posted on


I have been watching videos on how it is done by Microsoft but they all talk about and use MDT/WDS/SCCM.

Is there a way to transfer everything over without using those enterprise options? Or am I better off just transferring files off 1 by 1 and re-installing software?

I have 2 new machines and I want to move everything off from the Windows XP machines.


The Windows 8.1 disk won’t allow you to migrate directly from Windows XP. In this case, you have to back up your files (as stated in this Microsoft article) and then upgrade.
