I was wondering, I already have Windows 7 installed on a WD Caviar Black 640GB HDD. However, I have a Corsair P128 SSD coming my way so I can use that to run Windows 7 and all the necessary apps that need the speed boost, and planning to use my 640GB HDD for other apps and/or storage. The last thing I'd want to do is reformat the HDD and reinstall Windows on the SSD straight up without having to do all the installations all over again. Is there an easy way to just simply transfer Windows and the drivers, and internet security, and Steam, and all with some certain techniques, or do I have to resort to the uninstall/reinstall bit? I run Win 7 Ultimate x64 Retail, btw, it's not OEM, so I assume that makes it more legal to be able to swap from one HDD to an SSD with successful reactivation, if it has to come to that. What are your thoughts on this?
Yeah, got my SSD coming on either Thursday or Friday myself, I'll probably go over to Best Buy this weekend to pick up Acronis, unless Acronis themselves offer a downloadable version of True Image, something to have on the spot rather than waiting another week for Amazon or Newegg to ship it. It's gonna be a long weekend in terms of moving things around, but I'll see what happens.
