We have a Dell dimension desktop running XP Pro SP3.  Would like to migrate the system image to a larger 2TB drive from the current 500 GB drive.  

When I clone the drive including the hidden dell partitions I cannot get the system to boot.  Can someone please help with the proper order for cloning the partitions.  I would like the primary dell system image to increase from 450 GB to 1.5 TB.  

Thank you for your help.

Current partitions:
Dell primary 450 GB
Second 4 GB partition
Third hidden partion
