Need to Change Hard Drive (How to uninstall)

Hi guys,

Basically i brought an OEM version of windows the other day ,Installed fine and all was going well till my hard drive started playing up. So iv invested in a new hard drive do i go about uninstalling this copy and putting it on the new drive, Because i was told it could only be installed on one pc ?

Any help would be great

Windows 7 has its own backup utility. You just need to create a system image and then restore it to the new drive. Be aware, the partition sizes will be exactly the same as you current one, but you can increase the size later using Disk Management.

There is a tutorial showing how to use the Backup and Restore utility.
