The hard drive containing my system partitions is dying. I can still 
read it, but will have to rapidly replace it by a new (and bigger) drive.

Does somebody have experience with - rather re-installing Mga and 
Windows-7 partition - simply copying the corresponding file-system 
(piped tar) and then just recreating the boot sector - would be much 
quicker, in particular for the windows partition? Any particular 
precautions to take?
