Hi

In a situtation where a Windows 7 Pro machine is BSOD - spent several hours fixing it but no luck. My goal is to restore the installed programs to a fresh install.
So i took a Acronis *.tib full backup image, converted tovmdk - The VM blue screens with the same code.
Acronis Universal restore sounded promising but failed - i get no universal restore option while restoring, Acronis reckons this could be because Acronisdoesnt recognize the OS.
So does anyone know how i can backup installed applications from Machine A (which is not bootable) to Machine B (fresh install of windows)

You cant . Not as you want to do

In general Installed programs cant be copied to another PC, cant restore JUST the programs to a fresh Win install

There are some exceptions, but programs usually have to be re-installed .
you can restore the files from installed programs to a new PC/reloaded PC, chances are they wont run.

The windows 10 install usb doesn't need to load windows first, could be worth a try yes.

If the cause of the BSOD happened before the the Acronis backup, simply converting to a VM won't fix the underlying issue. If you regularly backed up the machine with Acronis before the BSOD, try an older backup.

 

Why do you need "those specific" programs re-installed? Original installation media can be found on-line. You could load the Registry of the dead PC to read the license keys for your installed software..

 

A fresh install is always better than a recovered system.

Yes, but it will more like a new install . You will need to re-install all programs etc.
If you want a true in place upgrade, that keeps most of the programs, the upgrade needs to be run from a running Windows

 

Your best option is to do a clean wipe & install . That can fix alot of issues.

 

BSOD can also be hardware related though . Do some RAM tests and Hard Drive tests first .
