you may want to use a Disk imaging program and use that to migrate from your old HDD to your new HDD. what an disk imaging does it takes a snapshot of your system exactly the way it is and copies it to another hdd. i like macrium reflect.http://www.macrium.com/default.aspx
Just one other quick question. what kind of blank CD would I have to use to copy an image.
I know I just cant use a regular blank DvD cd.
Cause I only have sata connector to connect one hdd.
