MacBook Pro Drive with Boot Camp to boot into Vista
 
I have my drive out of my MacBook Pro. I bought a DriveWire to transfer old drive 120 GB into new drive of 250 GB. I have two partitions in the old drive. Using Boot Camp I can boot into Mac OS X - Leopard or into Windows Vista Ultimate.

First, can I transfer all of the old drive's contents from the old drive to the new drive via DriveWire using Shirt Pocket SuperDuper? Can I do this with the old drive and new drive out of MacBook Pro using Drive Wire and a second computer to use USB with Shirt Pocket SuperDuper installed on it?

Second, can I make two partitions and transfer each of the partitions from the old drive to the new drive. Plus, I want to use 170 GB on the Mac OS X partition and 80 GB on the windows vista ultimate partition. Can I transfer each and have the new drive dual boot the same?

Third, if that doesn't work, is there a way to transfer the original files via re-installing MacBook Pro with Leopard installed. Then, transfer using drive wire usb into new drive. Can I also make those partitions with the Shirt Pocket Super Duper. Or, do I need to create one big partition with Mac OS X Leopard, then re-install Boot Camp and all of Windows Vista Ultimate...

Please advise as to all potential ways to make this work. Most importantly, I would like to use a second computer just install Shirt Pocket SuperDuper on it and transfer between two drives that are both attached to the Drive Wire.

Thank you for ALL of your assistance. I am really at a loss here, and I do not know how to make any of this work without additional instructions not included with either Shirt Pocket SuperDuper or the Drive Wire documentation itself.

Thank you again.

Cheers,
Dave

We do not copy BootCamp partitions, Dave. What you can do is partition the new drive as needed, then use WinClone to copy the Windows partition, and use SuperDuper! to copy the Mac partition. Make sure the new partitioning is done properly, using the "GUID" partition scheme.
