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.
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.
