As a side note, cloning from a HDD to a SSD is not recommended. A clean install to the SSD will be a better option.
I've used clonezilla before with no problems, but this was going from a HDD to HDD.
Yes, this is very good point. Windows 7 has several specific parameters that are set for use with an SSD, that are set completely different when installed on a standard mechanical drive. Simply cloning an installed OS from a mechanical drive to an SSD would leave these parameters set for undesirable performance and life expectancy of the SSD.
