If either the old HD or replacement is a WD or Seagate HD then you can use Acronis premium cloning/imaging app to clone or image over the old OS to the new HD.
If not you can Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup to external with Win7 backup imaging then reimage the new HD. However the Win7 app is limited in options so you can only reimage the OS exactly as it lays on the current disk.
If you want more flexibility as to where you can place the old OS on the new disk use Macrium - Image your system or the Acronis free apps which are best.
