Can anyone give me a rough step by step guide to transfer everything on a 160gb harddrive with an 80gb Mac Leopard partition & an 80gb Windows Vista partition to a new 320gb drive I am about to install in my early 2008 15" Macbook Pro.(That will be fun too haha) I will be putting the old 160gb drive into an external usb/firewire enclosure. I have downloaded "SuperDuper and Winclone as I think they may be needed. Any help would be appreciated to avoid any nervous breakdowns.
Thanks

On the Mac side, just connect the external via Firewire and in SuperDuper tell it to copy the Mac partition to a new partition (of equal or larger size - they don't need to be the same) on the drive in the MacBook. It's very straightforward, you can't really go wrong.

Not familiar with the Windows side, but I imagine it's a very similar process.
