Default cloning sata's?

Is it possible to clone a sata drive, because I built my entire machine yesterday on this drive, but after getting some money for x-mas I wanna buy a bigger faster sata drive, so can I clone the drive in my computer without any special software?

The build they have nortons ghost setup to put on a machine, has a bunch of extra crap like programs they use at his work, plus they run it off of a server on their network(meaning my dads work), so I don't think I could even connect to it, he would probably get in loads of trouble for letting me through the firewall to connect to the server...

EDIT--> congrats on the almost 2000 posts

If your wanting to make an exact copy of your computer, then norton ghost will do that for you, so you can transfer it to the new drive. You just need the ghost software to do this. I get the feeling that your talking about a ghost image, that ya dad already has from work, and not the actual ghost software, that allows you to create the image in the first place
