Copying one hard drive to another hard drive
"The new hard drive does not need to be formatted."
"If the hard drive that you want to copy contains more than one partition, you
must copy each partition, one at a time, to the new hard drive."
The original drive, one or more partitions?
"To copy one hard drive to another hard drive
1 On the Tools page, click CopyMyHard Drive.
2 Complete the steps in the wizard to copy the drive."
I would use smart sectoring which speeds up the copy along with the make the drive active. Distination partition type primary. IMPORTANT: match the current drive letter with the ghost drive letter selection.
