    If your old HDD is functional [ will boot into Windows ] you clone your old HDD's data [ files, Windows 7, programs, everything ] to your new HDD using Acronis True Image. You will need to purchase the bootable media [ or purchase a download to create bootable media. ]

    It will probably be useful for us to know more about your system. Please run the forum's system info utility & post the results. http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

    I have read about Macrium, but not used it.
