I have 2 hard drives which are both 1TB SADA/64MB cache WD10EZEX. Neither of which are in a computer. The 1st hard drive has Windows XP installed on it with a ton of source code and a compiler. This drive is bootable if installed in a computer.
The 2nd hard drive is identical to the first however it is totally empty. No OS either.
I want to clone drive 1 to drive 2 so that I could swap out drive 1 with drive 2 and expect drive 2 to boot as well.
Can this be done in a reliable fashion? I have purchased a usb transfer box that will handle IDE and SATA drives. What software do you recommend to clone hard drive 1 to hard drive 2.
