i was gonna say that. Get a HD immager program then put the HD u want ur OS to be on and put it with the other HD then run the prog. It should coppy everything from one to another.

well its the best way to do it, i had a friend who put bits of his 40 GIG HDD on to CD ... lol

i told him to put the HDD into the computer then image it, that has to be the best way.
