Migrating from AMD>Intel

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Got my Ivy stuff today and set it all up but I'm not receiving my SSD for a few days so I really don't want to fresh install now on this HDD but running my Intel setup on my previous install of Windows has really messed stuff up.

Is there anyway to remove all the AMD stuff from this install? As long as I can get all cores/threads running for now I'll be happy, Once I get my SSD I'm going to fresh install.

As you can see taskman still thinks I have my Triple core Phenom II for some reason...

CPU Z doesn't see much but 2 cores and 3 threads:

But in Device manager all threads are showing:

Thanks in advance for any help biggrin.gif

thats weird, CCleaner and Driver Sweeper should be able to find any residual AMD drivers/programs.

As for CPU-Z not picking up the cores im not sure. I guess try and get the chip set drivers for your new mobo if you haven't already. Check for any BIOS updates too. Sometimes they get motherboard updates with better support for specific processors.

You might want to try Sysprep.exe ==> http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/135077-windows-7-installation-transfer-new-computer.html

That should bet rid of the AMD stuff and then re-detect the Intel stuff. biggrin.gif

Step 11 in the likn might interest you on this:

"Windows boots now to default OOBE first boot desktop, with default 800*600 resolution and default theme. All your installed applications are there, as well as your old user profiles and folders. Windows has installed the default drivers for your setup, you can update them if needed." thumb.gif

Hi,

I'm posting this as a last ditch to see if anyone has successfully done the sysprep method? it seems to work but you are left with lots of junk in your registry and device manager.
I've also tried system repair and that really didn't do anything.

My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate, I went from an AMD X4 630 proc on Gigabyte MA785GM AMD motherboard to an i7-3770 proc on an Asus P8Z77-V Pro Intel motherboard. To play it safe I cloned my C-drive from AMD PC to the Intel PC so that I can go back in case I have problems. I have tried multiple ways including the Sysprep method from Sevenforums and I just can't get rid of some of the residual items in the device manager; I also did a clean install and took snapshots of the Device manager to compare to the Syspreped method.

I compared the device manager from a clean install and from a migration install using Sysprep and I can tell you there are just too many residual things left over that I simply cannot remove. I've spent 2 weeks off and on trying to get this to work and I think the end result will be to just do a clean install, install apps and move the data.
Getting the Intel HD 4000 graphics driver was also a pain. And then there were certain items that no matter how many times you tried to install them they would never show up in the device manager

I consider myself a very savvy Windows expert; I have no problem getting in the registry; but I think the amount of time I spent trying to get this to be as good as a clean install is not paying off.
Hopefully this will help you guys in deciding what's involved and also understand that the Sysprep method will still leave lots of junk in your registry and device manager that you will not be able to remove, which will result in some performance degradation.


Here are the things in the device manager that should NOT be there.
To bring up Device manager I opened a command prompt as administrator and typed without the quotes "set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1" then start devmgmt.msc (keeping command prompt open)
Then View menu and select Show hidden Devices


Device Manager:

Non-Plug and Play drivers (too many to mention; here is a sample):
Intel AHCI controller
msahci
pciide
Vstore2 MntApi 1.0 Driver (shared)

System Devices-
4 Entries of "Motherboard Resources"
2 Entries of "System Board"
ACPI Power Button
File as a Volume driver

In the registry there are lots of entries referencing to the following (removing them will cause BSODs or the dreaded continuous reboots):
AtiPcie (AMD PCIE Filter Driver for ATI PCIE Chipset)
amdsata
amd_sata
amdxata
amd_xata

It should be a repair install that you need to do: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html

According to that link:

ITEMS THAT WILL BE RESET TO DEFAULT OR AFFECTED:
* Sounds
* Services
* Visual Effects Settings
* Device Drivers - Be sure to have these handy to reinstall. They do not always remain after the repair (upgrade) install.
* You may lose the ability to sign on to MSN Messenger, to solve this problem have a look at this thread Unable to sign in to WLM.
* You may lose your custom themes due to not having permisions set on the old themes. Go to the hidden themes folder at C:/Users/(User-Name)/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes, then Take Ownership of the themes folder and you will now have all your themes back.
* It has been reported that you may also lose your Media Center gadget after doing the repair install.
* Windows Updates will need to be checked and reinstalled again.

*** This is why a lot of folks recommend a re-install of WIndows 7 especially if you transition from AMD to Intel or vice versa.

Never a good idea to swap to a different motherboard and CPU without a clean install. A repair might fix this but a clean install is the best method.
post #7 of 7
That's what I thought also:perform a clean install. I did try the repair but there are just way too many left over items in the registry of the old AMD chipset and ATI on-board graphics card. Since this wasn't a motherboard swap on the same pc and it was a new build; I was fortunate enough to have both computers up and running so I was able to try the different options, I had my original AMD system imaged and I could keep laying down the image to the new Intel PC to try the different scenarios without affecting my original system.
Fresh installation in this case is what I decided to stick with and I will slowly migrate my programs and data from the original PC to the new one. They are both on the network so it's easy to move things from one to the other. I did many searches on the internet and they kept going back to the Sevenforums thread which just won't work for all situations. As I mentioned; I consider myself at expert level; but even experts can always learn from other experts, so thanks again for confirming my initial suspicion.
