    No that's not what I am after, I have a friends hard drive from his broken laptop which has in important licensed business management program on it but unfortunately the hard drive slot on the replacement laptop has different plugs. The Idea was to use clonezilla to copy everything over from one to the other then boot from the new computer.

    Okay your after recovery tools. If you look up tutorials/video on using norton ghost or clonezilla, you should be good to go....


    Two options:
    1. Bootable CD
    Some bootable recovery discs available are found here:
    ive used hirens boot cd and also ultimate boot cd without issues

    Then use either norton ghost or clonezilla (http://clonezilla.org/) to clone the drive.


    2. Another windows machine
    If you can plug it into a windows machine you can use the windows based versions:
