No problem, all you need to do is put the windows or anything else to your new hard drive.

You should just keep them as separate drives.

he means 2 seperate physical disk drives....
C,D,E etc are simply logical partitions of the same drive......i think what he means is when u put the disks together, pls ensure that one logical partition doesn't span both the physical drives....if that is even possble in the 1st place:)

i'll try :D 
While installing windows on the New 500GB, u can make 2 250GB partions on that if u want.....but leave the old HDD as it is:) 
Don't try to combine the 150+500 into a single 660GiB logical drive :) 

If u still don't get it, don't bother :)

4 logical drives on the 500Gb is also okay...no problems.
If ur doing a clean install, the old HDD shud show itself automatically in My computer.....in case its not, u gotta right click My computer->Manage->then do somethin under the Storage option......don't remember what exactly noe thoe :)
