The Windows ntbackup program isn't so much a direct drive copy tool or image backup program as it is an incremental backup program. It's more for making backups of selected files than for transplanting an entire OS onto a new drive. For this you're better served with a program like Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image. There are a handful of free programs that can pull this off also, although they require certain amount of computer knowledge to use.
If you'd like, Acronis is offering True Image Home 2009 as a free download. This is beta software, meaning software that may not be fully stable in some cases. Use at your own discretion.http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/suppo...ng/atiHome2009/
