HDD cloning questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a friend who owns a business that uses POS (Point of Sale) setup and wants to replace all 5 systems. They quoted him $12,000 to replace all of it so he ask me if I could help him with this. I don't really have a lot of experience in this field, but id imagined that it would take is cloning his HDDs into the new one. Im aware there are cloning hardware, but again have zero experience. So I have a couple of questions hoping our community can clear up for me.

1. After cloning HDD would it boot up with the new motherboard setup? Considering I need the cloning to be done down to the OS
2. Any recommendations on what brand/software to use that has the least hassle more user friendly?
3. Anyone have experience in this that can enlighten me to what I can expect such as issues I may run into?

I like to do this anywhere between $1500-2000 range. The system themselves is going to cost around 200-250 each with maybe the cloning hardware around 100. This is all based on what ive researched so far if anyone that can shine some light on this i would much appreciate it thank you.
