    I am going to upgrade my MBP's hard drive and I wanted everyones advice to how to copy my the drive.

    I have a bootcamp partition running on the computer along with OSX partition. Do I need to do anything special since I have the bootcamp partition with Windows XP running on it? Or, can I use Carbon Copy Cloner and just move each partition one at a time?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure that CCC would move everything over properly, but you should probably check their support or docs and see.

    I use Drive Genius, and I know that it will not do it with a drive partitioned for BootCamp. They say they are working on incorporating this in a future release.

    Do you think a DD command in the terminal would copy correctly?

    Have you tried SuperDuper!?

    I don't know about the Windows, but I know it works with the Mac partition.
