you can use SysRecCd as a bootable option.
or use Gparted, that is supplied with most live_cds.

the two two HDDs would need to be connected together,
on the one P/C, of course..
- easiest if they are both SATA type HDDs.

there are also dedicated devices that will clone,
& thus don't require a PC at all. ..

I am pretty sure that you won't find any difficulty.

-- Cloning:
List of disk cloning software <- 'This list of software works with Windows, Mac, and Linux (or can be used from a Live CD)
G4L <- Ghost for Linux
PartImage (SystemRescueCd) <- 'Great to have on hand when in a twist'
Computer Cloning with Partition Image <- 'So you want a backup partition' + 'Tutorials' + 'PartImage Wiki'
Hope this helps.
