I need to upgrade HD for dell inspiron 9400. How can I copy old HD keeping original factory config?


Answers :

Download Hiren's disk and on teir their are heaps of cloning tools. My favourit is Nortons Ghost. This will make an image of your hard drive and burn them onto a dvd for you and once you have done that install your new HD, boot of the Hirens disk, start Nortons ghost then burn the image of your old HD onto the new one and then you can continue your computing from where you left off from.
