If I install a new hard drive what is the best way to copy the full disc of the old failing hard drive and instruct the computer to boot up from the new drive?

Use the new drives software to clone the system over. Just visit the website.

Or use acronis true image.

Seagate's Disk Wizard (free download) will clone an old drive to a new one. It comes with detailed instructions on what to do, if you follow the "add new drive" route.

It is, in fact, a cut down version of Acronis True Image.

You cannot do the same thing with just copying - it requires special cloning software to work.
