so i just installed my new 1tb 7200rpm hard drive, and it runs perfectly, my only problem is windows 7 is on my 500gb hard drive, so i want to move it over to the obviously faster hard drive. What's the least complicated/easiest way to do this?

Thanks for any help you can offer me, i really appreciate it.

Use disc imaging software to either clone the drive or simply create an image and restore it to the new drive. Acronis True Image is the best of breed disc imaging software, Macrium Reflect is the best free alternative.
