Download, unzip, install
Hook the HD you want to clone to up as a Slave [or just install if SATA]
Format to the file system you are going to use.
On the first page make sure you have:
Source Volume C
Target volume = drive you are cloning to
Click on the Cool Tools tab
Click on Make Bootable
Put checkmarks in all 3 boxes
When the box opens click Yes
When the blue progress line is done click Exit
Do the clone
When you are done set the cloned drive to Master & either set the old drive to Slave or remove it & keep for a backup.

BTW, I don't think Vista will clone , XP & below.
The only thing I've found that doesn't clone is AVG anti-virus.
I just uninstall it before I clone & reinstall when I'm done.
