A friend has a Dell inspiron 6400 laptop with a 60gig hard drive. She is running Windows Vista Home. The problem is that the hard drive is too small for her needs and now needs to upgrade to a bigger one.
There is a recovery partition on the drive which has a factory image on it and what i would like to do is, buy a bigger drive and use the image to restore the factory installation of windows and the applications.
i was wonder if i would just copy the entire restore partition as is to the new drive, and then go through the process or restoring the image. Sounds too easy so was wondering if there is something else i would need to do?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
