Prep the hardrive using the manufacturer's software. I use maxblast 5 (free download) for maxtor and seagate drives. It may ask you what version of windows you're using to set the maximum size partition that is recognized. It will also ask you if you want to set it as a boot or secondary drive, then you can make a drive to drive copy. After copying files, it shuts the system down and you can disconnect the old drive or set it as a secondary drive (if it's ide) by changing the jumper.
