I have recently purchased a 1Tb HDD to install inside my Thinkpad Edge E520 (1143CTO) and I have tried so many different things to try and get my data to transfer over to the new hard drive so that my computer will boot from it.
I have a Freecom USB Docking Station.
I have tried using Windows 7 Backup and Restore and using the Windows7 Repair Disc it created for me and it says its for a previous version.
I have bought Norton Ghost 15 and its not working properly.
Any advice for a newbie???

Obviously you are doing something wrong. But if you just say "It is not working properly, how can you expect anyone to actually help you?"

Put the old hdd back into the machine
Grab a boatload of blank DVDs (I assume you have a DVD burner
"Ghost" your current HDD to the DVDs
Remove the old hdd and install the new hdd
Boot up using the Ghost disk
Follow the prompts to image your new drive
If that doesn't then you need to tell us exactly what "isn't working."
