The cost of the new laptop you bought includes the price of Windows 7. If you clone it, you would lose Windows 7 (not something you want to do if you just need data from the old hard drive).
I am assuming that you have connected the old hard drive to the new laptop using a USB ‘hard drive enclosure’. If not, you will need to purchase one based on the type of hard drive it is (SATA or IDE). Also make sure it can handle the storage space of the hard drive.
Once you connect the old hard drive to the new laptop through the enclosure, you can use it as an external hard drive. Follow these steps to transfer data and settings manually.
1. Click ‘Start’ and click ‘Computer’.
2. Assuming that the Windows 7 partition is ‘C drive’ and the old hard drive is represented by ‘D drive’, copy the contents of ‘D:\Users\*Windows Vista user name*’ to ‘C:\Users\*Windows 7 user name*’.
If the old hard drive is damaged, you will need to use a ‘Data Recovery Software’ rather than a ‘Cloning/Imaging Software’.
Hope it helped.
