It's just there isn't a direct pathway of saving one's 'settings or data.
Nor can a W7 upgrade be used in this situation.
Here I am using W7 Build 7100 which I am running concurrently with MicroXP.

Along with both these OS's I have also created a back up partition for Data as well as a partition for Linux.
Anyway, I thought I'd like to share it with you guys.
For those interested : here is a link to explain PE.
Of the four X systems in the world.
Which would you choose?
OS X : LinuX : UniX or MS-BolloX.
