    My boot sector crashed recently and after DAYS of repair attempts, I finally gave up and bought a new hard drive. Now what I am wondering is if I can transfer any of the old programs over from the previous hard drive to my new one without going through all the "reinstall" hullabaloo? I do have access to the files on the old hard drive, I just can't boot from there... Any ideas/programs to recommend?

    Thanks!
