Can this be done. I am getting a new computer with a larger hard drive and I want to transfer the contents of the old hard drive to the new one in my new computer. Both have windows 7 home premium installed.

You can clone the old hdd to the new one, but it will most likely not boot to windows. The reason are the different chipset and controller drivers. If it's intel->intel or amd->amd you can at least give it a try, but you will loose the new win installation.
