USMT Migration with custom Partitions RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in a process of migration from XP to windows 7. As of now we are not using standard partition structure. Moving further with Windows 7 my people want to manage a standard Partition structure, say C-->50 Gb, D-->5Gb for Paging file, E-->Remaining.

    As per my knowledge we can do migration without Formatting existing Hard Disk and we have done that already. But one of my Project requirement is like above. Can some one help me with this.

    • Take a backup of current Hard Disk, store it in Network Location which is possible from UDShare & BackupShare.
    • Format the HDD with custom partitions, C:, D:, E:
    • Install the OS
    • Load the Data of C:\ to C:\ and rest of the Partitions to E:\ Directly, since D:\ is only used for Paging File.

    How to do this. I don't have much knowledge on generating Custom XML Files. :(

    Thanks in advance.
