Trying to copy backup from SimpleTecj 500 from XP to Windows 7

Before I bought my new computer I backed up my old computer that was running XP so I would be able to copy it on my new computer which is running Windows 7. I can't get it to work. What am I doing wrong.

How to back up d630 BIOS to CD


The BIOS is stored on a ship inside your computer and cannot be downloaded and copied over to something else. Please keep in mind that your BIOS is what boots up your computer and your OS is usually Windows. BIOS cannot be backed up but your OS can.

If you wish to backup your OS there are many ways to do that. If you have windows 7, 8, or 8.1 Windows already has a built in backup program that you can run. If you are on Windows XP or Vista then you will have to download and run your own backup software.

I'm trying to move files from old computer to new computer.


The easiest way is to use an USB memory stick, plug this USB memory stick into the XP computer and copy the files from the XP computer to the USB memory stick, then remove the USB memory stick and plug it into the Windows 7 computer and copy the files from the USB memory stick to the Windows 7 computer.

This is just planetarium software. You can download several FREE planetarium software that are much better than that old software copy--

Here are two that are free to download--

and

Use these instead of that old outdated software that only runs on Windows 98.

Trying to upgrade from windows XP pro to windows 7 pro error missing or corupt file ox80070241


The source you are installing from, either DVD or ISO file, is corrupt. Download a fresh copy of ISO file or burn a new DVD.

It is always better to install from ISO file directly using MagicDisc
or any such software.
If it still does not work, then i suggest that you backup all data and install windows 7 formatting the hard drive.

Next Uninstall the "New copy of "Windows XP.' Note: The process may take some time; be patient! Once the tasks of cleaning the bad programs are complete! Restart the computer. Next, after the computer is back to the Desktop (window); follow the instructions carefully. "After you have completed the "System Restore, you can Install once again the "New Windows XP software.

Follow all instructions thereafter. *Note:Once the computer returns to Windows Desktop, “do not perform any tasks, for at least (45 min) the System Restore is still running.” "If the solution was helpful, rating it is appreciated!
