PC now boots Windows 7 from the 1.5 TB drive and all options on motherboard that were switched off are back on and 8GB RAM is in.

The way I got the 1.5TB drive going was to create a backup image of the working install from the 80GB drive and then restore it to the 1.5TB drive. From there I extended the C: drive to 256GB and created the other two partitions.

Only outstanding issue now is the audio driver - I will start a separate post for that at some stage.

Congrats

Great. Glad to hear that the problem is solved.

Thanks for letting us know how you solved the problem.

Which software did you use to create the image?
Which software did you use to restore the image to the 1.5T disk?

Once I had a working install on the 80GB drive I used Windows 7 backup to create the image on a 3rd disk and to also create a system restore CD. I swapped the 80GB and 1.5TB drives over and then booted from the system restore CD and restored the backup image using the restore CD.

Fantastic. Thanks much for the feedback. That is precisely the procedure which I would use. Give us a yell if you need assistance again.
Thanks, Karl
