Windows 7: Mirror to drive instead of reinstall on new computer?

Mirror to drive instead of reinstall on new computer?

My question is: I recently bought a new medion Core2 quad with 1tb running windows 7 as my old medion (almost 10 years of good work)decided to have it. the mother board just gave up. but I have removed the old hard disk with all my files. it is in perfect order. I have windows XP home installed on it. My question is. can I safely create on my new pc a partition were I will then mirror the entire old drive and have the option to boot in xp also, instead of installing it from scratch?

Any help will be very much welcomed!
