Hi aalawee,

What's the operating system?
As you're moving to different hardware some more has to be done before cloning the disk.

although this doesn't answer your question, save yourself the headache, and reinstall the operating system on a new drive as well as any applications. Your files are not difficult to copy over afterwords.

Unless this is for a large production environment where you want to clone an image so that you can install the same image on multiple PCs, it seems like an awful lot of work for nothing..

Yes, the MSKB pages I posted are specially made for doing that, moving a running windows installation including all programs to another system.
As you also want to use a different harddisk, you'll have to clone the disk after performing all of this.

If you're running winXP you might have to re-activate windows afterwards.

As I understand between the lines, you are putting your new HDD in a new computer.
If you use Windows XP ( and in some cases older OS too) you just can't copy it because of drivers incompatibity, and because of anti-piracy protection (XP)

What you can do is:
Install a fresh copy of your OS on the new drive.
Connection the old HDD as slave to the new system, and copy you documents to your new HDD

You might have to "take ownership" on your old document in order to copy then to your new HDD.

As for the Applications, you'll have to reinstall everything :-(

How to take ownership:
