I'd recommend you another way: place the old drive into the computer, connect the new drive to it, start the machine, and then clone the old disk to the new one, extending the startup partition, if necessary. Then replace the old drive with the new one and start the computer with the new one. The R-Drive Image help: Copy a Disk to a Disk
describes the operation. Pay attention to the "To copy data from an entire hard drive to another hard drive:" link.
