So, i decided to upgrade to an SSD not knowing that my motherboard has no Sata III ports. Which i'm honestly sort of ok with for now. My question is, if i make a system image of my C: drive (the SSD), but i install most of my programs on my 3TB Drive will i be able to recover that image to the SSD, and still run my programs like nothing has happened? I know that if i get a new motherboard i'll need a new license for windows 7. I'm also running in AHCI mode.
If yes, i'll order a cheap Z77 board with a couple Sata 3 connections.
