Yes, if the drive is capable of being locked (check online list of all PATA drives and their lockability).

You FTP the files off your X-box drive C:/ and E:/ (or download some) together with your Xbox HDD Key and use them to create a bootable ISO image of XBOXHDM (google for it) which is a special linux boot disk and burn to a CD. Put your new hard drive on IDE0 as a Master. Boot off the new XBOXHDM disc... follow the instructions to format and partition the drive and copy the files over before locking it. Transfer back to the X-box and voila!

If you use a hard drive over 250Gbytes you will need to use the X-Box tool xboxpartitioner later to re-format the F: and G: partitions with larger clusters or you will loose data.
