Remember, the computer will not boot yet. Let me know when you are done and we will clone the drive.

Please download EaseUS Disk Copy from here. Use the free download button on the right.
- Run the exe file and you should get the screen below. We will create a bootable USB or CD. You will need a blank flash drive or CD. Please note that any data on the flash drive will be erased.
- Please select either USB or CD/DVD depending on you choice. Then select "Proceed" and let it create the bootable media.
- Now you need to insert the USB/CD into the laptop with the new hard drive. Please boot the computer to your USB/CD. (Instructions can be found here.) You should get the screen below:
- Please select "Start Disk Copy."
- Click "Next" until you get this screen. Please select "Disk Copy."
- You will now select the source and destination disks on the next two screens. Make sure you read carefully and select the right disks. All data on the destination disk will be erased. If you have trouble choosing the right disks, please stop and ask for help.
- When you get to this screen, make sure all of the info is correct, then select "Proceed." This copy will begin and will probably take a long time to complete. When it is done, select "Quit" and reboot your PC.

Probably it is running so slow because of the damaged HD. Hopefully it will complete soon.
