I have a 60GB OCZ Agility 3 (my boot drive) and a 128GB M4. I want to move my OS to the M4 for stability reasons (My OCZ drive BSODs 1-2 times every week. I'm aware of the new firmware but I'm sure the M4 is still more stable).

I was planning on just mirroring the OCZ drive to my M4 via the disk management tool in Windows 7 Ultimate. After mirroring, I was going to unplug my OCZ drive from my MB and change the boot priority to the M4. Hopefully it will boot from my M4 and I'll try and remove the mirror from the M4. After that I was planning on plugging my OCZ drive back in, booting, updating the firmware, and wiping the disk.

Any thoughts? Would this work? Further suggestions?

Looks like you have it all planned out properly , good luck with your switchover. The other option to mirror is in the action center and system recorery.

It partitions the 128GB drive into two drives... Anyone have any ideas on how to move the OS without cutting up my 128GB?
