if you use Norton Ghost, you can clone your existing program onto a new HDD, but if you want to change O/S...... no choice, have to re-install everything, because the new O/S will go search the DLL and settings from a different location compare to your old O/S from your old HDD.
re-install all..... guai guai...
1. Launch Windows Explorer and go to Tools->Folder Options and click the View tab.
2. Select the Show Hidden Files And Folders option button, clear the Hide Protected Operating System Files check box, and click the Yes button in the Warning dialog box. (If the system is in a workgroup, you'll need to clear the Use Simple File Sharing check box as well.) Click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box.
3. Access the root directory of the hard disk, right click on the System Volume Information folder, select Properties and access the Security tab.
4. Click the Add button, enter your user account name in the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box and click OK twice.

Norton Ghost by far has been used extensively to backup OSes using ghost images. What it does is it actually snapshot your system and create a GHO file which u can use to clone multiple PCs.
What you can do is as follows:
1. Create an image using Norton Ghost for ur current OS.
2. Make Norton Ghost portable on a thumbdrive or a CD.
3. Boot the system with the new HDD (empty OS) to boot Norton Ghost via USB or CD.
4. Restore the GHO image u created to the new HDD.
5. Let the process run complete and reboot upon prompt.
6. U have ur OS on the new HDD.
There are other commercially available software like Acronis TrueImage Restore which is quite popular nowadays for image restoration, backup and cloning. If you are running VMs, then u can also use VMware.
yup. mirror image and norton ghost is same thing. the concept is very straightforward.
mirror a computer after installation of softwares/drivers/updates, install the mirror image to all computers that have same OS and hardware.
i think u can use it for ur case.
Many IT sexbirds here
Sounds challenging to me. lol tonight i shall try !
Use EASEUS Partition Master 5.1 Home Edition to do repartition not affecting ur data
In some cases, u may need to set new HDD to active partition and fix ur Master Boot Record for it to boot up
For best result is to do a defragmentation before start using ur new hdd..
Above software are all freeware.
