    you can make a ghost image with Norton Ghost or some other backup software. you do realize that since you are changing Window's default location from the 250 HDD to a 500 GB SATA, you might not be able to boot since PC is gunna look for Windows on the defualt C:. Unless you change your PCs settings/configuration to tell it the 500 GB SATA is now the default C:

    Dont remember how to do that off top of my head, but there are guides out there for doing so.
