Few questions about transfering to new drives

1. Can I clone my drive using ghost, and - VANTEC NST-260SU-BK Aluminum 2.5" USB2.0 & eSATA External Enclosure then swap the drives and have it work.

2. Will it clone all my partitions?

3. After swapping out, can I install a hackintosh on the drive I am putting in the external enclosure (old drive) through eSATA.

not so gray matter

W7 Ult. x64 | OS X

1. If you clone the drives properly and set all of the correct parameters it should work. An easier solution would be to create a system image and use that to install Windows.

2. If you select all of the partitions then it will clone them. You may have to copy them one at a time, I'm not familiar w/ Ghost.

3. I have no idea what the parameters of Hackintosh are. I know for a fact that it requires extra drivers and whatnot because OS X only comes with a finite set of drivers and it's fairly difficult to install them. You should follow the instructions you find on the web. It is possible to boot OS X off USB 2.0.
