    I spent about two hours last night transfering all my files over from my old MBP to the new one, which arrived yesterday. (I used Migration Assistant through ethernet)

    It was successful except Windows Vista Ultimate virtual machine (which is for VMware). The exception message said that the file is too big. The file size is about 60GB (including Windows HDD partition).

    I don't want to reinstall Windows to my new machine because I already registered my Windows to my old machine.

    Is there any way to resolve this so that I can run Windows just like I used to before?

    Thank you for your help, in advance.

    can't you just move the file over manually ? anyways, when i moved my xp partition it threw up the "you will need to re-register windows" flag due to alot of hardware changed. plus it gave me some tools errors.
