I want to install Windows 7 64 bit tomorrow on a new HDD. I'm doing this because I've got a new motherboard and CPU I'm putting in as well.

I don't have a spare drive beyond the two HDDs, so I don't have anything extra to backup on really.

I'm curious if I'll be able to transfer things over from the old Vista 32 bit HDD without any problems just by having both HDDs plugged in?
