Currently Being ModeratedJul 3, 2010 11:24 AM (in response to wheights)Well, you might want to post in the MacBook Pro forum; or Using Mac OS X.
Clonging OS X with Apple Disk Utility Restore is pretty straight forward. Did you look in HELP menu?
Another good program is SuperDuper - read the PDF it comes with, is free for full volume operation and is highly recommended.
Windows will need to be reactivated and sometimes it is best to reinstall on new motherboard - and would need to be full retail.

But I would also add that Carbon Copy Cloner is an excellent way to move a hard drive:
Mike has been making this incredible application since OS X 10.2 -- maybe 10.1! I routinely clone my boot drive and then I also use Time Machine. Here's the difference:
A boot drive clone will just boot if you "Bless" the System folder.
A Time Machine backup requires that you do a full restore from your original OS X Installation (or upgrade) disks. That takes time.
Since what I do needs me to get to work quickly, often under client supervision, the use of Carbon Copy Cloner is essential.
For a Mac Book Pro, I would re-clone my boot drive to an external drive once weekly and hook up to Time Machine daily.G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iPhone 1.12
