Well, this "might" work for Windows 98, but it won't do a thing for any NT based system. I think even with W98 you may run into issues.

A much simpler way is to use the disk image utility that most major drive makers supply for free to move the O/S over, and it work with all versions of Windows.

Use windows start up disk,boot to a dos prompt and type
xcopy c:\ d:\/h/i/c/k/e/r/y/s
and replace old with new as master [should work from start/run too]
assuming old drive is C and new drive is D

BTW No amount of copy software will work on XP as it invalidates the registration file on boot up if its a different hard drive and gives an 0x80090006 error.
