Depends on how you try to set up the new drive. If you just install the drive and try to install the OS on it ...then the wireless keyboard and mouse will not work as they are USB powered and the driver files for USB is not installed til after the OS has been installed.
Now if you set it up as a slave drive and then transfer the OS and everything then it will work that way..I don't recommend it as I prefer to have a clean install on a new drive.

Usually if your running xp on it it will detect them and just put in the drivers because they're pretty common these days xp has all the answers

I have a usb mouse and keyboard and everytime I've formatted and reinstalled windows, I've had no problems whatsoever.
