timworld2005, welcome to the forum,

 

you need to clone to the new hard drisk with it inserted in your system. If you are using Ghost you need to use the -IB switch.

 

If you search the boards you will find a plethora of threads about cloning.

 

As you have purchased a Seagate drive you may want to use Acronis, Seagate has their own version called Disk Wizard,

 

Hope this helps

Andy

Not alot, but Acronis imho is easier to use.
