I need to swap out existing 60GB HDD in IBM Thinkpad T41 for a new, 80GB HDD. Operating system is Windows XP Professional... and TrueImage 8.0 is installed. I have CDRW drive and have burned a TrueImage Boot CD. I have a 160GB Maxtor removeable HDD connected through USB 2.0 hub. And I just bought a USB 2.0 hard drive enclosure (2.5 inch) that will be used for the old drive as extra storage later. What to do? Put new HDD in the enclosure (USB 2.0) and send image to it... and install it in laptop? Or send image to Maxtor removeable HDD... put new HDD in laptop... and transfer image back to it? Existing HDD is NTFS format and I want new HDD to be the same, but am not sure if it's formatted now. I've also read about problems with drive letter assignment not ending up as C:\ when using a removeable storage device. Adjusting MBR (Master Boot Record), etc. to fix. Can someone please help?
