    Replacing (upsizing) hard drives has always been a harrowing experience for me, and now with Windows 7 and the E: partition it apparently uses on my hard drive, it’s even scarier.

    There are articles on the web but I haven’t found one that addresses this point in particular. They all say something about backing up the system on a disc or something. Is that what I’m talking about? All I see is instructions to move a C: on the original drive to a C: on the new drive. And some other stuff that I don’t understand.

    Maybe you can refer me to a nitwit-level step-by-step article somewhere that you know works?

    What’s on the E partition? You didn’t create it? I wonder if it could be the EFI system partition. It would be very small (~500MB) if that’s the case. I would just copy it to the new hard drive also.
