Back up computer to other compter with different OS?

Is it possible? The one thing Ive never had a firm grasp of is backing up/unpacking backups, it just never seems to work for me. Anyway, my laptop running W7 Professional 64bit, is now broken and needs to go away for repair. But its still usable enough to do a backup of everything. While this one is away I will be forced to use my netbook running W7 starter. Is there anyway to backup stuff from the W7 Pro and put it on the W7 starter netbook, even if it means overriding the Starter operating system and getting pro.

Uhh, what.

What are you talking about backing up? Get an external hard drive or something for media. Reinstall programs fresh when you get your laptop back if they nuke it.

You talking about the Recovery partition on your hdd? I think those are specifically locked to that computer. You could copy your programs folder and app data folder but you'd still be missing certain things for certain programs (and the registry entries).
