    Lol all you have to do, is put the hard drive in, boot windows go to my computer open the c drive, open another my computer and go to the new hard drive, click and drag all the folders from the one window of the old drive to the new drive. However! if you wish to boot from this new hard drive then you will have to install windows on it first, or you could use need norton ghost. or something like that
