Hi, I need to upgrade the harddrive in my laptop. I have a 60GB harddrive in the laptop. I have bought a new 80GB harddrive that I want to use instead of the 60GB but I don't want to reinstall all my software/system. I have an external USB2 case in which I can place the new 80GB and therefore have it connected when I boot on the internal 60GB (which I want to have replaced). I also have a dedicated USB2 harddrive with lots of free space, if needed for the migration. Please note that as this is a laptop I cannot have both harddrives "installed" inside the computer at the same time. I can access the new 80GB disk when it's installed in the usb case perfectly (partition, format, access files etc) though. This what I had in mind, step by step: 1. install the new 80GB drive in my external usb case, hook it into the laptop via USB and boot the laptop with its internal 60 GB disk. 2. Run some kind of migration/clone program that will make the 80GB disk a perfect bootable clone of the internal 60GB disk. I would like the partition on the 80GB disk to become 80 GB (instead of 60GB). 3. Remove the internal 60GB and replace it with the new cloned 80GB disk. I.e. install the new 80GB disk inside the laptop. 4. Start my laptop with the new 80GB internally and have an identical system as it was before (with the exception that I have a new faster and larger disk). I do not have a diskdrive. I've tried using Ghost v9 and failed. It never boots with the new drive installed. Can I use Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 or should I use True Image? Or something else? Or should I do it in some other way then what I suggested? I run XP SP2. In XP Disk Management, the 60GB disk seems to have 2 partitions. One that is 11 MB and has no unit letter and cannot be given any (at least not in the Disk Management). It's called DELL (yes I have a dell laptop). I have no idea what this is. I cannot access it and never have. The other partition has unit letter C:, and is my main partition where Windows and all my programs and data are installed/placed. Is this a problem!? I have installed XP on another disk and it had no problem booting etc. So it's not like the computer is dependent on this special partition, but perhaps my installation that I want to clone is!?!? Thanks!
