Probably you should have examined your
options before purchasing. But you have purchased and now you want to proceed.
I bought a SSD with my Windows 7 laptop and my plan was to use the SSD as my C drive (boot drive) and move the HD insto the second bay. Well I found a deal at buy.com on a 120 GB SSD Kit. The kit came with Acronis True Image and a external drive case with a USB connector. So when I received my computer I installed all the software I needed and I used Acronis to clone it. By cloning I made an exact copy of the HD and stuck it in and it booted they same but faster then the HD. So if you want to clone it would probable cost to 50.00 for an external enclosure and some cloning software. Now 50 is the high end price as you may find the software for frr on the internet. Reinstalling the OS involves using the system restore disk and the driver disk that is created when you create restore disks.
The choice is if your HDD you want to replace with the SSD has more data the the SSD drive then cloning isn't an option and you must istall do the system restore.
