    Yes, but you will get the best results by doing a fresh installation. You will want to use ACHI mode for the SSD instead of IDE mode (you are likely using IDE mode now). It is very difficult to switch to ACHI mode after Windows is already installed.
  2. i see, so its best if i just do a fresh install, thank you very much
