With Windows 2000 Server and Client and Windows XP SP2 support ending July 13, 2010 are you aware of all the resources available to help you move to a new client and server operating system?

We have created a End-of-Support Solution Center to help with the planning of your migration strategy from Windows 2000 or Windows XP to Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Client Migration

There is no supported migration path from Windows 2000 to Windows 7 using the User State Migration Tool (USMT). You must first upgrade to Windows XP and then migrate to Windows 7 with USMT 4.0 included with the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK).

Here are some resources to help guide you:

NOTE: If you are looking to move from Windows Server 2000, the best place to start is at the Windows 2000 End-of-Support Solution Center where they have key information to help guide you through the upgrade paths, migration tools, and toolkits you will need

    Excellent resource Stephen, just what I was looking for. This will definitely make our migration over to Windows 7 a little easier. Many thanks...

  • Saif, my a friend have the same problem,  no good method.

  • Saif,

    ATI never created a driver for the 9200 for Windows Vista. I would assume since they did not for Vista, they wil probally not do it for Windows 7 as well. You may want to post this issue in the Windows 7 Forums to see if anyone has come up with a workaround outside of running the XP driver in compatability mode.

  • The MAZZTer,

    I did mean Windows XP since Windows 2000 is not considered an upgradeable program to Windows 7. If clients want to purcase an upgrade to Windows 7, they must be on Windows XP or Windows Vista. Windows XP compatabiliy is closer to Windows 2000 than Windows 7 so the statement makes sense.

    If we upgrade XP to Windows 7 then we need to have a exact Graphics card that support Windows 7. I install Windows 7 on my PC . Everything is working fine but my Graphics card (ATI radeon 9200) don't support Windows 7. What do i do now ? I need help.. please anybody help me  .

  • who would want to upgrade to vista??

    Uhhh did you perhaps mean: "You must first upgrade to Windows Vista and then migrate to Windows 7"

    Because that would make a bit more sense.
