    Download a program called winclone. Use that to make an image of your bootcamp partition, then back up with time machine. When you put stuff on your new HDD, go through boot camp assistant again and partition it, but don't install windows again. Just go back into winclone, click restore tab, and restore the image you made to your boot camp partition.
