You cannot transfer the operating system from one hard disk to another. But you can use the backup utility to backup data and restore it on the new hard drive.

    I recently bought a new laptop and want to transfer my license Adobe Creative Suite Design and Web Premium on my new computer laptop. Please tell us the steps how to disable my old laptop and transfer/install to my new laptop.  Thank you very much.



    You should not disable since you are allowed to have two active facilities.  But if you don't want to have a backup available facility, and then to turn it off, just to open one of the applications and choose disable in the Help menu.  That will disable the suite together.

    To install on the new machine, simply install it yourself you did initially.  If you downloaded it initially then you'd find a link for it to yoru online Adobe account.  Otherwise, you will find a link to the next page:

    If you still can not find a link then indicate what version of the suite you need and can probably provide a more direct link.

  • How to migrate Office persistent link clones of workstations for the new data store

    Hello. We have clones of persistent link to view running in the environment from our view. We need to migrate these desktops to new storage. Rebalancing is out as this will include a refresh operation - destroy anything and everything installed in c:\ of the user. Is there a method to migrate Desktop clone link persistent to a new data store, while keeping the office in the same exact state (i.e. c:\ is not updated).

    Thank you

    Never say impossible. I came across the solution when I read the article by Duncan Epping:

    I have that for my situation. Basically, replicate data from view in the new storage warehouses. Set up data warehouses replicated without re-signing with the cluster of ESXi. Turn the power off and unsubscribe the vCenter view workstations. Save the workstations from the data store replicated/mounted to vCenter and power over desktop computers.

    VCenter, nothing dramatic has happened if she sees just as vm being unregistered and re-recorded activity from the same exact data store (the same UUID). View Admin is happy because he sees just the events as desktop computers that have been turned off and then subsequently in reverse. Nothing has changed regarding the database to view ADAM, we still use the same data warehouses.

    I have already tested before for a scenario of View DR, and he succeeded. Between remembering who and Duncan's article helped me to adapt the same process for this. Nothing is impossible

    many apologies for my bad English :-)

    I bought Photoshop Elements / Premiere Elements to Amazon 2 days. Today, I tried to install it on my new Macbook, there is no unit of DVD, so I copied the files on a SD card and put that in the Mac and began to install. The application process the Adobe ID, I connected and then typed the serial number. He asked for the volume and started installing. After that, he stopped and noticed, that there is an error in the health check for Original software and said: that my product is NOT original. It is due to the copy of the SD card, or is it real hacking? A thinking about it?

  • I need to upgrade my Mac (MacBook white unibody mid 2010) with a SSD (and iMac mid-2010) and the RAM and SSD

    I need to upgrade my Mac (white unibody MacBook mid-2010) with a SSD (and iMac mid-2010) and the RAM and SSD: I look to buy upgrades site Crucial and OWC site and there is a little difference, in terms of money: it's better to buy the Crucial site or OWC site.

    MacBook, OS X El Capitan (10.11.4)

    < re-titled by host >

    They have good tools to find compatible parts for your Mac models.  The OWC took is here

    OWC tends to have the most detailed information on the Mac.  If I look to the top of the part to OWC and review specifications.  OWC offers often information based on the Mac-specific tests.  If Crucial offer something similar for a substantially lower price, buy it from Crucial.  I'm sure they have a refund is not political, if a part they say is compatible.  I bought the RAM and SSD both Crucial and OWC.  From my experience, be it high quality.

    For the 2010 iMac, OWC also offers a "kit" (with the tools and support) to replace the hard drive of 3.5 inches with a 2.5-inch SSD.  Eventually, if it's a 27-inch iMac, I think that you can Add the SSD instead of replace the hard drive.  And they have self-produced how-to videos on the process, related to many of their lists of products.  OWC provides a lot of information with added value and service for Mac users.

    OWC also offers kits to replace the optical drive on some Macs (including MacBooks) with an SSD (as a secondary internal drive).

  • Restore Vista Premum (32-bit edition) for the new hard drive from the laptop when original disks are lost?


    I'm trying to upgrade from my son's laptop computer and want to replace the current drive with a much larger.

    It is running Vista Home premium Edition (32 bit) and he lost his records came with the laptop: I can do?  I bought Windows 7 Upgrade and a disk hard sata 500 GB, but I need to get Vista on the new drive before Windows 7 readers.

    I backed up the data using Windows Easy Transfer for issue restores the operating system.

    Please note that this is a laptop, I can only have a hard drive up both and I don't know how to get the operating system to the new blank disc? I can create a recovery on a DVD disc / C or something Vista or a 3rd party utility?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Contact the manufacturer to see if you have a recovery Partition and if it can create recovery discs.  If so, create the recovery disks and you will be able to use them to restore the system to factory conditions once you have installed the new drive (but you may need to install the new Vista compatible drivers for the new drive as the recovery disks can have only those for the old disk).  Otherwise, contact the manufacturer and get a set of recovery (at a modest price) discs and use them to restore the system to the conditions of the plant on the new drive.  When we talk to them, confirm that their recovery process allows you to install new drivers for the new drive hard during the process and exactly how do (or it doesn't work - so be sure to check it out).  We cannot help you with recovery of the manufacturer process as it their not Microsoft.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Recover the Original of Windows 8 for the new HARD drive


    Drive HARD original of my Dell laptop inspiron 15R 5521 has been crushed. She had previously installed Windows 8.

    And, I had upgraded to windows 10 recently.

    Please guide me to reinstall windows 8 or 10 for the new HARD drive via online, coz' I don't have any support recovery (DVD or USB).

    And further,

    1.) is it possible to reinstall windows for one SSD?

    2.) I get all venus applications (application of VGA, Audio application etc.) from Dell with my laptop with the re-installation of windows... ?

    Thank you


    If your system already has Windows installed and activated 10 follow my instructions here to directly download and reinstall clean Windows 10:

    Looks like you're in this scenario.

    Note Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 editions are specific. If your system came with Windows 8.1/10 unilingual homepage, Windows 8.1/10 will not be activated.

    Unfortunately there is no clear marker for end users to determine the edition so my advise is to try first to try Windows 10 Home, if she does not activate Windows 10 unilingual homepage.

    Get a SSD for optimal performance.

    Dell have updated drivers for Windows 10 pilots (WT64a) system:

    See installing the driver recommended order:

    If Windows 10 was not enabled you must reinstall Windows 8.1 and then upgrade. Follow my instructions here:

    Hello Vishal,

    Welcome to the Microsoft community. I appreciate your efforts to resolve the issue. I will certainly help you with the problem you are experiencing.

    If you purchased a computer with installed OEM Windows 8 on it, there could be a sticker on the Tower, or in the back (in the case of a laptop) with the product key to this topic. If there is no sticker, he can be preinstalled on your system BIOS.

    See the suggestions posted by Andre Da Costa replied on March 7, 2013.

    In addition to this, see:

    Product key lost or misplaced (certificate of authenticity) for Windows

    If the problem persists, you can contact the manufacturer of the hardware for the same thing and check.

    Hope this information was useful.

    Hi Rachel

    Go file > Scripts > Image Processor which opens this Panel

    It will be easier if you put all the images in a folder, you can select this folder and all the files it contains batch. The numbered sections are in the order you need to follow, so nice an easy.  Don't forget to assign a location record well, or you might struggle to find their.

    An alternative, FI you re using Windows is Irfanview.   It has more options than the Image Processor, but maybe it's a little harder to use.

    Good luck
