Trying to chainload Windows Vista/Windows 7 and Ubuntu with grub

Trying to chainload Windows Vista/Windows 7 and Ubuntu with grub

I was running out of space on my internal drive, so I bought a new drive and I am trying to take all the files from my old internal drive and put them on my new drive. Including the OS that was installed on my old drive. I made a exact copy of my old drive and put it on an external hard drive. I installed Ubuntu on my new drive. So now I am wondering if I get all the files and the OS from my old drive onto my new drive in a new partition if I can chainload Ubuntu, Win Vista, and Win 7 with grub.

For this to work, you also need to have the proper boot records on your partitions. But honestly, I would recommend reinstalling the OSes, because such tweaking may cause strange compatibility issues.
