If it won't work, Acronis True Image is worth a try. You can clone or backup image.
Just to be a bit clearer as i had to read it a few times,(hope im right) **HD1-original HardDrive, HD2- Second New HardDrive
Save a back up image of your entire OS partiton on the HD1 (and any other partitions if you need them) and place it in a partiton on HD2. Make sure the partiton on the new HD is Formated as NTFS-Primary and Active
Turn off PC,then remove the HD1 leaving HD2 the only hard drive on your pc.Boot up using the Windows 7 disc and enter the Repair Console>Recover Using an Image>select the Image that you just saved onto your new HD.
