    So I bought my toshiba Tecra M7 with a 40gig HD, because I could buy a 120 for a much cheaper price than the upgrade. Only in retrospect do I realize I need a copy of Windows Tablet Edition 2005 to install.

    Would it be possible to clone the the disk they give me and copy it onto the new drive? Or perhaps make a rescue DVD and restore onto the larger disk? Or am I going to have to buy my own copy of windows tablet?

    I don't think Windows Tablet PC is sold by itself... But I'd think all new laptops would come with restoration disks... in which you can use them even with the new hard drive.

    Nah, don't worry about it. You own that copy of Windows, and can do whatever you want with it (within that laptop). Your hard drive is totally allowed to change. For an easy upgrade, I'd use something like Nortan Ghost if you have it, or yes, just use the restore CDs. Those'll work just fine and be 100% legal.
