New hard drive question
I have a new hard drive I want to install in my computer, then move everything over to it, including the os, and then format the old drive and use it for storage. I have a copy of Norton ghost which I was told will work to do what I want to do. My question is this--should I install the hard drive first, so that windows finds it, then install ghost, or should I install ghost first, then install the hard drive. I am thinking I should install ghost, install drive, boot using the ghost cd so that windows never finds the new drive, then use ghost to swap over everything, then boot using the new drive, and use windows to format the old drive. Does that sound correct? I have no previous experience with any of this so sorry if I sound like the noob I am! Thanks for any insight.
