well its been said,
i not sure if its been confirmed proper
(as in no exclusive experiment to test JUST this)
but 'in theory' u could make a backup of the original HDD
AND (and this the main part u have to do!)
a backup of the partitions (the disk.bin)
then reload this onto the new HDD
(using the disk.bin to creat the partitions)
and of course check to make sure all it well after !
also making sure that u using a clean untagged GT this method will work !
well im going to put this to the test shortly !
(in about a month, unless i get a spare 2 month trail thingy)
as on a unflagged GT the HDD/account details are stored locally only it seems
and this HAS been confirmed !
but on flagged GT, then much more tests are carried out .. (checkiing of serial numbers and so on.. is one said rumour)
