Thank You very much for everyone's help!!!!
I initially thought that once I copied the files that they would run on the new laptop. With all of your help I found out that I use the tool to copy the Win 7 OS file to the jumpdrive which made it bootable.
The 1st 2 attempts at this were on my Win 7 Pro 32 bit. It failed both times (I almost gave up.) I then tried on a Win 7 Premium 64 bit and it worked!
I am now downloading the updates. A couple websites that I read said to this with Wifi off. Not sure why. I did not turn off my wifi adapter but instead plugged in to an ethernet cable. The laptop does not know my wifi network name of password yet so it can't login to wifi.
Thanks again and if you're ever in Orange County let me know and I'll buy you a beer.
