Here's my situation.... My Lenovo T60 is about to arrive any day now with a 100GB SATA 5400 hard drive. However, after I ordered the T60 as an afterthought, I ordered a 100GB SATA 7200 hard drive to replace it as the 5400 is too slow. Here's the problem.... The 7200 hard drive is on back order for 4 weeks. I want to start using my T60 immediately. So.... I figured I'd load my 5400 hard drive system up with all the software and stuff I want on it. When the 7200 hard drive comes in, I'll replace the drive and transfer from one drive to another. Here's how I plan to do it (and this is where I need your help) I am going to use software such as ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE or GENIE PC BACKUP to create an IMAGE of the 5200 hard drive. I have an external Maxtor One Touch drive for my desktop that I can store that image on. As soon as I replace the 5200 with the 7200 hard drive I plan to use the LENOVO FACTORY RECOVERY DISC to load windows and the basic drivers. Then I'll load the TRUE IMAGE or GENIE PC BACKUP software and RESTORE the image that I made to my Maxtor drive. Will this work? Can I expect all the information I took off of the 5200 drive to work as well on the 7200 drive? Also, I take it that it won't matter that I am moving an IMAGE of a 5400 hard drive to a 7200 hard drive? Does the IMAGE contain any information about the 5400 hard drive that may hamper performance of the 7200? Thanks in advance for the help!
