Moving/Copy Vista

Hi All

Is it possible to copy or duplicate an entire hard drive containing an installation of Windows Vista into another hard drive (or maybe even USB external hard drives), inlcuding all those boot loaders and MBR's and stuff, and then it will boot up (I know you might have to configure where to boot from etc...)? The existing computer will be windows 7.

Thanks all

  1. Oo I know this post, it was in the XP forums. Yes you can, but it will wipe the existing drive, and if the systems are not very similar you will have many driver issues. Use a cloning program like Ghost.
  2. I originally wanted to combine the two, but since there were two seperate sections, I would have to compose it twice...

    And it will still wipe out the other drive if you copy it into a blank drive and connect it up?
