Default Hdd Cloning

Is it possible to clone a 40g HDD onto new 160G HDD, without installing windows on the new HDD first?, What I want to do if possible is transfer my current OS and data straight onto a new hdd drive make that my master drive then erase my old hdd and keep it just for storage.
Would Norton ghost do it as I have the 2003 edition and have cloned my current drive many times but not HDD to HDD.
