I never deactivate anything when replacing OS drive

1. If the new disk is the same size or larger than the old disk, I can simply clone the disk in the $30 Astone standalone cloning station

2. or create a Win7 image to another internal drive, then remove the old C and insert the new and boot from Win7 DVD to start the image restore to new drive (Note that the new drive needs to be the same size or larger, if it is smaller, you need to shrink the old C in disk management before creating the image)
