    Can't seem to get the hang of where to post on the new forum! Senility is creeping I think.

    PROBLEM
    Running Edius 7.53 on Windows 7
    I have posted previously that when I try to save to file or print to DVD the computer blue screens with the message ”A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval”. The computer is about fifteen years old although not used very often. It plays perfectly on the timeline and every time it blue screens I have to save it with another name. That is OK
    The programme has taken me two years to make, is full of precious clips that I could not take again, and is two hours long and approximately 1TB.
    A local technician has now looked at the machine and found a problem with the BIOS and that the CPU is running near the top of its speed. He is wary that if he ups the BIOS that it will wreck the motherboard. He has been unable to find a new processor to replace the existing one due to the age of the machine.
    QUESTION
    1. In view of the above problem can I safely back up the complete programme, clips, timeline, SFX etc to another hard drive on the same computer, change the motherboard and CPU, and possibly upgrade the memory, go to Windows 10 and move to Edius 9, and then transfer the programme back again?
    2. Similar to 1) but purchase a new updated computer, transfer the programme and do the same?
    This material is irreplaceable and I do not want to lose any clips or links.

    1. a 15 year old PC needs to be used as a boat anchor
    2. are all assets of your project in the project folder or are they spread all over the place on various drives?
    3. EDIUS7 projects can be opened fine in EDIUS9

      To add to Anton. Is everything in the project folder or all over your hard drives ? How many hard drives do you have ? If they are that important you should have more than one copy of the files anyway. Get an external hard drive and "save as " the project to that new hard drive. Then copy all the files used in the project to that hard drive. If you have the files and project in the same folder it is easy to just copy that of course but I am assuming you have not done that. Considering the age of your computer I think a totally new computer is what you will end up with so do not use anything from the present one. Having got a second copy of everything on the external drive you have a backup. When you get the new computer all set up you can install your old hard drives in it ( if they are SATA drives though at 15 years old they may be IDE and no interfaces on a new motherboard so will not work. May then have to copy them to a new hard drive too ) and likely your project will load from them. They will have different drive letters from what the project expects so you will need to get EDIUS to recover those files from new locations.

        Instead of trying to install a lot of old drives, right click on the files in the Bin and select Transfer to Project Folder. That will copy all if the files into the project folder and then you can just copy that.

          The only problem with that done while on his old system if the boot drive is small like 500MB which is where his project folder is there will not be enough room for 1T of video files. Transferring everything to the new external drive that way would work though. Good idea. Then everything would be setup for his new PC too.

            Despite it being an older computer my local techy came up with a solution. It all revolved around the very high temperature that the chip was working at and fitted a water cooler and altered the \bios a little and noe the CPU is running at about 60 and not the 100 degrees as before. Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated.
