I have seagate disk wizard downloaded to do the job and reading about it sounds relatively simple, however ...
My old drive is IDE my new drive SATA, my old motherboard does not support SATA therefore I can't install the new drive into my old system to create a cloned image, would the way to go about this be to:
1 install my old IDE drive into my new motherboard,
2 do a repair install to get windows up and working again,
3 then install my new SATA hd into the new system as slave,
4 create a cloned image using disk wizard
5 allocate my new SATA hd as boot drive
6 repair install new drive to functionality
or should I:
1 install my new hd into my new motherboard
2 load on windows from XP disk
3 install old IDE hd as slave
4 create cloned image of old IDE drive onto the running new SATA drive
5 repair install windows to funtionality
should be looking at creating a cloned copy onto a DVD? is this possible?
Any help appreciated, if what i'm doing sounds stupid tell me!
