Here are some slightly more "advanced" tools and utilities for working with Vista (and XP).
I'm dropping them here mostly for reference from work, but you might find something interesting here as well.
I've linked and mentioned many of them before, but wanted to put them under a single location.
- Microsoft XP Change Analysis Diagnostic Tool - As reported by ISC-SANCS
- User State Migration Tool 3.0 - Microsoft TechNet reference pages
- Migrating to Windows Vista Through the User State Migration Tool - nice Microsoft TechNet abstract with diagrams and screenshots along with explanations.
- Migrating to Vista using User State Migration Tool 3.0 - another overview from Windows Networking website.
