Hi,
As you want to copy OS itself, then you have to use some disk cloning softwares to achieve that. Because if you try manual full copy from hard disk to hard disk then invisible MBR (master boot records) wont be get copied as this is needed for booting into operating system.
I would like to recommand a free disk cloning utility for you need. You can donwload the EASEUS Disk Copy from this link http://www.easeus.com/disk-copy/
Please read the software documentation before using that s/w

I guess this is useful in solving your need.
Thanks

Imicro 3.5" sata ide hdd combo enclosure


Install unit into a another desktop with sata drives. Leave bootup configuration as is and then see if unit boots up and sees the installed drive as a slave. If so transfer the data over to the main drive. If the drive is really messed up it may not even allow the good hard drive to boot up; then you will not be able to even access the data on the bad drive and you may have to take it to a data recovery service - ouch (expensive).

The external drive does not show up on my desk top and it is plugged in.


Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.

Cannot reformat. Always says windows cannot complete reformat


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is malfunctioning.

Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Take the drive to any computer store, and buy a compatible drive -- same size, same interface (SATA? IDE?).
Then "transplant" it into the enclosure,
to "reconstitute" your external storage device.
