    When you clone your HDD to the SSD it will boot if you use a proper cloning tool like http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm

    There's also a nice tutorial here: http://www.todo-backup.com/backup-resource/data-transfer/migrate-windows8-to-ssd.htm

    i have and i understand how it works but i wonder, is it 100% that i can just simply boot up on the ssd and have everything be as it was before on the hdd?
  6. That worked for me. I purchased a SSD with a kit when i bought my Acer As8950G. I installed a few apps and i had to order a cable to be able to move the HDD. When I received the cable i used the cloning software Acronis True Image and put the SSD in the external drive and moved the OS to the SSD. I then removed the HD and moved it to the second bay and added the SSD and it booted right up and has been for 3 years.
