Comment (by richienyhus):

I created a GCI task last year to add some Windows-to-Haiku migration
features to the C# app [https://github.com/HaikuArchives/HaikuOnAStick
HaikuOnAStick], although the task was never accepted.

Basicly the master plan would be to get it to grab the lastest Haiku
nightly or release, the firmware for the system's wifi chip and then the
system settings and personal information (contacts etc) that the user
wants to migrate.

Then it would create a USB stick with a bootable Haiku system on a bfs
partition and a small fat32 partition with the information retrieved via

It could be packaged and distributed by Chocolaty and Nuget (the Windows
equivalent of HaikuPorter and HaikuPorts)
