I have both cloned and full imaged many a drive, and so have many others here. Help me make sure I understand:
You want to transfer the OS and 3rd party programs from the failing HD onto the new 1TB HD, correct?
The new 1TB HD contains some material, games, downloads, which the original HD does not have, correct?
Are the games and other downloads to be installed "within" the Windows OS, after said Windows OS is transferred from old to new HD, correct?
What external media do you have -- usb boot sticks? dvd boots? external storage like DVD blanks, 128GB+ usb sticks, external HD[s]?
To the best of your knowledge -- are any present programs and/or data folders/files on your original HD having problems 'cause of bad sectors?
Depending upon your answers to my first question set, I believe I have a possible solution set which you will not like if you are wanting an EZ-Single-Pass operation. I have been where you are now, I have geekily, and I mean geekily, done what you desire to do several times.
One time was a spectacular failure, I learned some things the hard way. A couple of times were so-so, yawning success, no parades.
Last time was aok, because people helped me who were brlilliant in hardware and software -- like Hamlius, dc3, Aura, and others who are here.
