I'm working on cloning XP onto a new HDD. My current HDD has a partition set aside for recovery. Can I image the recovery partition to my new drive and then reinstall windows from that partition?

I'd have to say...it depends.

Some OEMs have a process called tattooing...whereby a hard drive transfer is not so easily accomplished.

Google Links, Hard Drive Tattoo

If that is not a consideration...using the appropriate software to clone the hard drive...results in an identical copy of the content.
