acronis will work fine, same with norton ghost, if you ever used them, they actually copy over your partitions to the new drive not the entire disk, so if you have just one partition just use those, if you have more, still use it and then delete the partition off of the new drive that you dont need

never tried drive image, idk how friendly that is, but with Acronis you can always mess around and none of it be finalized until you say its ok which is a great help

drive image has always worked. acronis has left me with unbootable systems many times. it also clones empty space, which add time to the mix. they are both on the hiren's cd
