You're overlooking a chicken-and-egg problem there: your new computer has
no 'tar' to unpack that file.

Could the native Windows version of 7-zip be used on both old and new
computers?  Also, perhaps the Windows Image Format (WIM) could be used
instead, presuming UUIDs would not be an issue if both computers shared
identical machine names and accounts.

Just curious.
