Using dd to copy a Windows partition

Had to fix a Windows box at the weekend with a failing hard drive. So I bought a new hard drive, slapped it in the box, booted an Ubuntu live CD and followed these instructions to copy the Windows partitions across to the new drive. It now boots off the new disk – no problems.

Sweet! 🙂
