Hard drive cloning

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know this has been asked many times before, but I have a few different factors than other people.

I have two laptop drives, an unknown brand (I'd have to check) (40GB), and my new Samsung (100GB). On my current 40GB hard drive, I have several partitions, one for Windows and one for Linux. I'm looking for software that will create an exact clone of the first drive: it can't just copy the windows partition!

Note: I have two PATA to ATA converters available.

Edit: Will something like this do? http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing...s/migrateeasy/

with Acronis you can get Linux filesystem support.

Yeah, just saw that.

Hard drive is DOA for sure. Tested on two laptops (Dell and compaq) and on a custom-built computer via 2 different pata to ata adapters.
