I have a windows vista system from Dell (xps).  On the C drive there is a c partition and a D partition.  On the D drive I believe there is the data to reset the system to factory original conditions.   


Lately I have been having some hard drive problems.  Upon boot up the system occasionally runs a consistency check (chkdsk) and sometimes finds some problems.  I think the drive may not have a lot of time left.  I am about to get a new PC, but would still like to keep this one (son plays games, etc.)  


Is it possible to buy a new C drive but have the image from the other D partition used to create the image on the new drive?


Not sure if I have the original Vista install disc or not.


Thanks for any suggestions.
