Transfer HDD To New Windows PC
I want to transfer my old HDD to a new PC and believe Acronis True Image Premium can facilitate this but I'm unsure how to proceed. Or is there another way of doing this. I do not want to perform a clean install.

I know Macrium Pro has a function called "Restore to dissimilar hardware".
Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download
However, with a new PC I would highly recommend a fresh install. And if your current system is an OEM installation, you cannot transfer it anyhow - will not activate.

As Recommended by whs, a Clean Install is recommended. Also for activation purposes if your current system is an OEM Installation, it won't activate.
However if you would still like to proceed, you can go with any of these: Acronis True Image (Premium) or Macrium Reflect FREE Edition.
