How to restore Windows on a new HD drive?

I managed to put a new 320 GB drive in my MacBook Pro. Next I partitioned the drive for MAC OS 10.4 and Windows with Disk Utility. Selected Volume Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for Mac OS 10.4 and MS-DOS File System for Windows. Next I restored Mac OS 10.4 with Carbon Copy from the old 100 GB drive.

BUT how to restore Windows?@#$%^&*

Carbon Copy doesn't do that.....??

Disk Utility doesn't seem to do it either

Winclone works with 10.5 and not with 10.4

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

What resources do you have to get Windows?


Are you using specialized software?

maybe an upgrade to snow leopard would make sense.

if you have a system running windows (run off old harddisk maybe) you could create a bootable disk (CD/dvd/thumbdrive) with enough system files to format and sys the windows partition. If you create recovery disk(s) you then repover from there.
