I'm not sure if it works that way or not as the only things I've ever copied HD to HD was program data & program installation packages.

I've always used Acronis to make an Image backup copy of the OS, then partition out the hard drives the way I want them (using the disk director media rescue disk as you don't even need an OS installed) then installed the image to the OS partition I made (using Acronis Rescue media to load True Image) & that was that... Done!
