You can not place the data on the new drive because when you later install it onto the laptop and you are re-installing Windows, you will have to format the drive.

You install the disk imaging software on the old drive. Then you create a boot cd. Then create an image on either an external drive or to cd's / dvd's. Then you install the new drive, boot to the Acronis or Macrium cd that you created when you first installed it on the old drive and point it to the image you created. It will place that image on the new drive and you're good to go.
Do I copy the back-up to the new drive before installing it into the laptop?
I have a 3.5" external drive case that I was thinking of using to mount the new drive in.
Anywhere I can find a start-up CD/DVD disk or will my dell disc work?

I can't find my Dell disks but I believe Dell 32 Bit Diagnostics (Graphical User Interface version) is a bootable disk, or does anyone know of any links to creating a Dell Inspiron 1520 boot cd?
Then you create a boot cd.
It won't let me install WD Acronis because my new WD 500GB/8MB 2.5" Mobile SATA HD drive is not installed yet. I've downloaded and installed the 15 day free trial of Acronis Home 2011. After I install the new WD drive I will use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall the Home version and then reinstall the WD version after I've successfully cloned and migrated to the new drive.
...WD has a free version of Acronis for example: http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=119

Sorry - I wasn't very clear. You create the cd with the Disk Imaging application. You will find an option to create a "recovery" or "bootable" disk within the program. THAT's the disk you boot to in order to begin the restore process.
Thanks everyone at Bleeping for such quick responses. Thanks for your keystrokes.I can't find my Dell disks but I believe Dell 32 Bit Diagnostics (Graphical User Interface version) is a bootable disk, or does anyone know of any links to creating a Dell Inspiron 1520 boot cd?
