Before you can perform a Windows 7 migration, a setup must be performed to prepare the image so it can be deployed during the migration. Setting up a base layer for migration is similar to setting up a base layer for standard Horizon Mirage operation.

Verify that all endpoint devices using third-party Full-Disk-Encryption are decrypted before proceeding with an in-place Windows 7 migration. Disk encryption software might interfere with migrations if endpoints are not decrypted first.

Verify that the USMT 4 package is configured on your Horizon Mirage server. See Import USMT Settings.

Right-click the Horizon Mirage icon in the notification area of the reference machine and select Tools > Windows 7 Image Setup.

The Horizon Mirage client runs a number of actions to prepare the image so it can be deployed during the Windows 7 migration.

You can now continue to perform the Windows 7 migration. See Performing a Windows 7 In-Place Migration or Migrate to Windows 7 Replacement Devices
