well if you have 2 hd's, then just use ghost to copy everything from the old drive to the new drive.
it's been a few years since i've used ghost (it was required at the tech job i had, we had to ghost every hd that we had to work on when it involved doing anything to windows. cover you own ass) but it should be fairly straight forward.

your name is bitch, and i own you!
