If you want to do this in the netbook you are going to need a bootable usb memory stick with cloning software or a USB DVD drive and cd of cloning software
And the other hard drive needs to be attached by a USB to sata bridge

Probably easier to remove hard drive from netbook and use a desktop PC and two sata data ports and sata power cable sets to do the duplication

Is the new drive larger than old existing netbook drive?
Clone to new drive then expand partitions latter
Cloning to a smaller SSD or hard drive is more difficult

You need to understand difference between a hard drive and a partition on the hard drive and choose suitable software for the purpose

There are too many programs to list
some are free others chargeable
Some companies make free reduced capability versions of chargeable software , often available from web site of hard drive manufacturers (WD , Seagate etc)
