Yeah, i've done it with a lot of games, even with my Games For Windows Offline profile and these saves from GFW.
So no problem at all

My need for speed most wanted worked really well. Tho i had to create a profil to see where it create, but its almost at same place. In XP like was in my document, and in 7, its like Document, My games, ... something like that.

Most of the savegames that in WinXP where located on ''My Documents'' now on windows 7 you have to go to your personal folder (created with your username) and inside you have ''My Documents'' (C:\Users\(usernamehere)\Documents) folder, most of them goes there, like: EA Games folder, NFS Saves, and in My Games (under ''My Documents'' root) you can find the GFW (Games for Windows) savefiles.

You can do the next steps: (Explained as RE5 saves)
When you start the game for first time, the account creation of games for windows live appears, so then you have to create a profile with the same name as being used under XP.

Now: RE5 the savefiles on XP where located on My Documents-->CAPCOM-->RESIDENT EVIL 5-->(GFW PROFILE NAME), this is the name of account used on XP try to create the account like it was, now to paste the savefiles, in windows 7, you have to go: C:\Users\(YOUR-WINDOWS7-USER-NAME)\Documents and paste the CAPCOM folder, is this doesn't works lemme know.

So i be doing some researching and things are like this.All save games files you copy paste to new OS after formating old one WORK.Now Games For Windows live games are diffrent story.For them to work you must copy game save files (of game that you want) and GFWL folder becouse it WILL NOT WORK without that folder
