I cloned my windows drive to a larger drive using knoppix and (qtdparted
from knoppix to increase the windows partition to the
new size.)  Cloning just takes a long time.
When you boot into knoppix you must unmount the source and destination
command is

#dd if=/dev/hada of=/dev/hdb

where dev/hda is the source drive and dev/hdb is the destination drive.

This makes an exact byte for byte copy including the mbr which may or
may not be want you want.  Afterwards you can boot to knoppix and adjust
partition sizes with qtparted if you want.
