Use Symantec Ghost, Acronis or similar software to create an image of your HDD into another one.

The process is fairly simple.... You would boot from the applications CD/DVD and while your OS is not loaded... the software can load your entire HDD into the other one. It is a fairly straight process and there are plenty of tutorials online.

Note: This is a very critical procedure and if you mess up... you can potentially erase the HDD with your OS. So... recommendation.... read the tutorials first and gauge the technical knowledge required. If it seems to complicated, then ask a person that has done this before to assist.
