Well, if you buy a new bigger hard drive, you will have to restore Windows using the Dell Restoration CD.

You know what I would do? Get the new hard drive installed and set it to an empty IDE slot or SATA slot. Then use Norton Ghost software to create an image of your existing drive onto the other drive.
