Welcome to TSG....

Before doping any of this I would like some system specs and the make and model number of the computer?

About the only way to do this is to use a disk imaging program like Acronis True Image you can purchase this from

http://www.acronis.com

Once you make the image you can switch the hard drives around and then run the restore function and then make sure the format is done first then restore the image to the new drive C:

You amy need the system disk to do a repair-install of Windows because of t he difference in hard drives and windows will dtect this and may not authenticate the drive properly. That is why I asked for the make and model of the computer so I can try to give you where to purchase the proper software.
