old disk to the new disk is the fastest way, but you can also have 
clonezilla copy to a file share/nas on the lan. then you reverse the 
process to copy to your new drive.

of course, afterward you'll need to boot gparted and expand your main 
partition, . Might have to delete and recreate the swap partition.

if you use Expert mode in clonezilla, there are options that allow it to 
do some of that automatically, but I always do it manually for best 

Works great with windows, but if the target drive is a little too small, 
you have to take steps and shrink window's main partition first.

To make this process easy, I stopped using LVM long ago and I have the 
installer automatically create using the whole disk.

that usually ends up as:  boot part & main part & swap. For that reason, 
to this day I dont know how to use LVM.
