Default New Hard Drive

Hey! I just bought a 1 TB hard drive from Newegg.com and I wanted to get some help with setting it up.

There are 2 main things I want to do:
1. Completely transfer my current Windows 7 installation to it.
2. RAID together my old 300 GB and 80 GB.

Since I have no idea how to do both at all, can I get some help?

#1 may or may not work... Windows 7 has a security feature that makes it attempt suicide if you try to clone it. Your best bet would be acronis trueimage or norton ghost.

#2 you can't RAID those hard drives. They need to be similar size and speed or else it can't work. The best you can do is JBOD. This will make the OS detect them as a single larger disk.
