I recently found this:

And want it to be my bootdrive, but I don't want to have to re-install windows, is there another way to do it to get on the SSD?

  1. Best answer
    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.
  2. Another question, how do I remove Windows 7 off of the HDD?
