Can I used NRnR tool to migrate?

I am going to be moving from Win7 to Win10 (via reinstall; not upgrade).

It would be nice if I could use NRnR tool (like on a single installation of windows to capture my settings and reapply them).

Is this possible?  If so, how?

Thanks!

Hello Mark. As for your Norton product settings, I don't know of a way to save your "personal Norton product settings" within your product doing a removal, to restore to a clean OS installation which would require you to reinstall your product. As a suggestion, it would be a wiser choice to use the Windows media creation tool and use the upgrade path going to Windows 10. You can get the tool here. Your system settings / Norton product settings would then be preserved vice losing them doing a clean installation of Windows 10. I have upgraded many systems with a current Norton product installed from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without having to reinstall the Norton product. Although not all systems will give the same results.

. Exporting your password manager logins is available using this guide. If you are doing cloud backup you can also restore them to the new install using this guide.

Well, the thing is that I am not upgrading Win7, but rather keeping it as dual boot option.  Now, potentially I could try cloning 7, and then upgrading it.  However, I have always been under the impression that the cleanest/safest way to install a new OS is to start from scratch.

Your initial post suggested you were upgrading thus my reply. If you are going to dual boot, you will need to install your Norton product on the Windows 10, install since it is a new and separate OS. Norton will see the computer as one machine, vice the number of OS's, so it should not require another seat or license to activate. You MAY see another device listed as Windows 10 in your Norton account under devices. There still wouldn't be any proven method for saving your Norton settings and importing into the new install.

I am not to concerned whether I denoted as having two seat or one.

* I have a 5 seat license and only 3 physical PCs; so at most 4 seats.

* When Win10 is up, the Win7 installation due to MSFT's lack of future updates will make me disable the network card in Win7 (at which point there will be no need for Norton).  Win7 is just being kept available in case some older games do not play nice with Win10.  As long as I have this PC, I will keep the dual boot.

Mark. Bottom line is, there isn't a way to save your settings and import them into another fresh install of Norton on a new install of Windows. The last post was informational for your benefit as well. Hope I have assisted in a positive way. Please have a grand evening and coming week.

Cheers
