I posted this question a week and a half ago in another thread, but since it didn't get answered, I figured I'd start a new thread to discuss this specific issue. I'm going to be replacing the internal HDD in my MBP (I have a 160GB currently, and am upgrading to a 320 GB -- I'm very excited!), and I want to clone over both my OS X and Windows XP partitions to the new drive before doing the swap, so that once it's placed in the computer, I can boot up, and go on as if nothing but the size of my HDD had changed. I have the new 2.5" HDD, and also picked up a 2.5" HDD enclosure to facilitate the clone, and to house my old HDD after the swap, so I can use it as an external. The enclosure is connectable via USB, since any that had FireWire were far more expensive. My plan was to plug in the new HDD via the external enclosure and format it to HFS+ with Disk Utility. Then, I'd use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone over my current OS X partition. I'd use WinClone to copy over the XP partition. Since the enclosure is USB, I won't be able to boot off the new HDD to test it, because FireWire is required to use Target Disk Mode, correct? If so, then how can I install the XP partition before installing the HDD in my MBP? Do I need to use the Boot Camp Utility to partition and format the new drive with NTFS? Or can I partition and format using Disk Utility, then create the WinClone image on the HFS+ partition on the new drive, then restore it to the NTFS partition on the new drive with WinClone, all connecting it as an external via USB? Or is there any other way to do this? Thanks, and I'm looking forward to your responses! Take care, Sojourn P.S. Also, should I name the new HFS+ partition "Macintosh HD" to prevent filepath problems? Or does it not matter? What will happen when it's swapped into my MBP and used as the boot drive -- will the drive call itself "Macintosh HD" automatically, or will it keep whatever name I've given it?
