ThinkPad W540 Migration using Lenovo Migration Assistant



I recently purchased a Grade A condition ThinkPad W540 Workstation with Windows 10 Professional 64 bit installed along with Lenovo Vantage. I have downloaded many of the Lenovo software programs for the ThinkPad W540.  I need to transfer almost everything ((programs, data, settings,)) from my older ThinkPad T420s Windows 7 Professional 64 bit to my recently purchased ThinkPad W540 workstation using Lenovo Migration Assistant. What exactly can I transfer over using the Lenovo Migration Assistant?? Does the Lenovo Migration Assistant check for program compatibilty between operating systems?? I could not find more details or information about the Lenovo Migration Assistant. I really like to transfer over the many Windows 7 Professional application software programs that would be compatiable with the Windows 10 Professional operating system. Please advise. Thank you.

Hello MarkGroch2,

Thanks for reaching out. We have done some research on the functions of the Lenovo Migration assistant and have found out that it will only transfer files and not programs. Let us know if you have any questions.
