you could use Norton Ghost and copy the stuff to the new HD

Talldude's idea would certainly work.

Another option is to go ahead and reinstall Windows on the the HDD as per normal. You get a certain amount of installs you can do before MS says that you may be using a pirated copy. However, this is quickly remedied with a call to MS

Of course, nobody likes Norton these days, but i dont think there a better copying utility.
