    yes should be possible

    When I have done this I have added the new disk and sata driver to the system as a data drive. Then rebooted


    Cloned the ide drive to the sata - removed the ide drive and rebooted

    I did this without too much trouble this week

    from : a Maxtor DiamondPlus 9 120GB (P)ATA/133
    to : a Western Digital Caviar (SATA) SE16 250GB S300 16mb

    The only problem I hit was that the clone process failed, seemingly unable to detect the drive after it rebooted itself, until I initialised the drive from Windows. After that it behaved itself.
