A clean install of Microsoft Windows 7 is the preferred method.

However, it is possible to use a utility to clone the operating system on your existing hard disk drive and install it to a new ssd. Some retail versions of ssd's include the cloning software. Unfortunately the one you selected does not.

Google is your friend. Just google for: hdd to ssd cloning

The results will provide you with all the information you need.
