put both your current source harddisk and new separate target harddisk in a machine and boot that from a bootable cd/dvdwith something like gparted (there's other similar software too but this is free and works), make a 100% clone.

Anything else: forget it.

Yes, the new drive will be bootable without using the disks from HP.
