Default Re: hard drive

you need to clone the harddrive.
try shadowcopy2: Shadow Copy Data Recovery Software Products - Runtime Software Products
or XXclone: XXCLONE, A New Way of Cloning the Windows System Disk

i have not tryed those programs before. i used acronis, but that is not free.

Or if either drive is a seagate you can use this: DiscWizard | Seagate
