Ok, so here's the situation;
I have a 80GB Seagate Barracuda Ultra ATA 133 HDD that I'm using right now. Said Hard Drive has been formatted so 40GB are used as Linux, and the rest of the 35GB are what I run Windows on. The story behind this stupid formatting is too long to tell, so I'll skip that.
Thats the background. Now for the real stuff. I have a 160GB Maxtor DiamondMax9 SATA150 HDD waiting. Its literally sitting in my case right now, it just isn't plugged in.
What I want to do; I want to install the 160GB Maxtor into my system right now, transfer all the data from the 35GB UltraATA Seagate to the 160GB SATA150 Maxtor (including Windows OS), then disconnect and re-format the Seagate to use in another computer and use the Maxtor as the main HD.
For one, are there going to be any problems with the UltraATA+SATA combination? Also, I don't have any idea how to actually transfer all the stuff over. I suppose I could just copy Drive C to Drive D, but would that also transfer over Windows? And third; I've heard of problems when there are 2 versions of Windows installed on 2 Hard Drives, will I be looking at something like that here?
I've put this off for far too long. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give.
