Windows 7: Need help with new HDD

Need help with new HDD

Hi all
Need some help lol
Basically i bought a new HDD yesterday wanting to install 7 onto it as its much larger then my current 7 space.
My problem seems to be is that as i have more then 1 hdd in my pc, if i remove the other hdd then 7 wont boot. So im assuming on the 2nd drive there are some system files there. Now, what i want to do, is clone my existing system as i have a lot of stuff on there ( video editing, files etc.....) but i want it to so i can end up with only one drive in my PC which will hold 7.
So, gurus upon this forum, is there any way i can copy my current system over to this new hdd and also include the boot files or whatever files are on this 2nd hdd, so i can boot of it and use it.
Reinstalling it all, i could do, but it would take ages and i have 7 exactly the way i like it

Thanks in advance
