    I am contemplating an upgrade from my 5400 RPM 500GB HDD to a 7200RPM 500GB Seagate Momentus XT.

    The problem is I have a 400GB Mac OS X partition along with a 100GB Windows 7 partition.

    SuperDuper and CCC seem to only support AFS+ partitions so I can move over Mac OS X easily, but neither can copy both partitions.

    Is there some kind of boot utility that will clone the hard drive pretty much exactly? I'd prefer to not have to reinstall W7 on the new drive as I have an upgrade copy and it is a pain to get a clean install activated.

    Make a clone of your Mac OS X partition using SuperDuper; correct.

    Then use WinClone to make an image of your Windows partition; note you may need to save it to an external drive if you dont have enough space on your OS X partition as it saves it to an image file.
    Then use WinClone again to restore it to the new drive partition.
    I believe its recommend to use BootCamp to recreate the partition again then clone over the Windows install.
